New York, November 1 (RHC)-- The UN General Assembly will vote today on the draft resolution calling for the end of the US blockade against Cuba. Foreign minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla told TeleSur that once again the document will garner the overwhelming support of the international community.
The minister added that on Wednesday 31 delegations took the floor at the General Assembly Hall to voice their rejection of the hostile measure and called for the end of a policy that violates the human rights of an entire people.
Cuba's top diplomat noted that the United States has tried to distort the nature of the resolution with the addition of eight amendments which seeks to alter its content arguing presumed violations of human rights on the island, in order to obtain a pretext to further reinforce the blockade.
Rodriguez projected that there will be a rejection of the US amendments, and that like on the 26 previopus occassions, the international community will flattly rejectythe long-standing hostile and extraterritorial measure.
