The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution calling for an end to the US trade embargo on Cuba. A total of 191 UN member states approved the non-binding resolution, whilst the US and Israel voted to oppose it.
The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said that the embargo would remain in place “as long as the Cuban people continue to be deprived of their human rights and fundamental freedoms”. Only the US Congress can lift the trade embargo. Click here for the UN press release.
