MOSCOW, February 1 (Itar-Tass) - Persisting U.S. economic, trade and financial embargo on Cuba is a Cold War anachronism outdated in the modern world, Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said Friday commenting on the results of the second summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) on January 28-29 in Havana.
“The successful summit in Havana presided by Cuba confirmed the country’s high status in the region,” the diplomat believes. He also noted the participants’ outspoken rejection of the U.S. embargo.
The meeting of presidents and heads of government of the organization comprised of 33 independent states of the Western hemisphere, save for the U.S. and Canada, closed on January 29. One of its main results was to proclaim Latin America and the Caribbean countries "a zone of peace".
