One hundred and ninety-one countries have agreed for the United States to unblock Cuba. The countries will vote on each of the amendments regarding the sanctions against Cuba.
Notably, Venezuela’s ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada defended Cuba and expressed support for Cuba on the need to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the Government of the United States (USA) for 56 years against the island.
