United Nation Assembly Condemns US Embargo On Cuba

Intro

The UN General Assembly has condemned the US embargo on Cuba which has lasted for over 60 years, calling for an end to it by a vote of 187 to three.

Only Israel and Brazil voted with the US against the resolution. Two other US allies  Ukraine and Colombia abstained.

First imposed on October 19, 1960, in response to Havana’s nationalization of US-owned oil refineries, and extended in 1962, the embargo is an enduring legacy of the Cold War hostilities between the two countries.
