U.S. blockade hinders access to medicines, Cuban FM denounces

Havana, Aug 19, 2020.- The blockade that for more than 60 years the United States has imposed on Cuba makes it difficult for the island to acquire medicines and medical equipment, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez denounced this Wednesday.

On Twitter, the Cuban foreign minister reiterated that his country is demanding a halt to Washington's hostile policy.

He added that UN human rights experts confirmed that humanitarian exceptions to unilateral coercive measures by Covid-19 are ignored.

Cuba has denounced that the government of Donald Trump has tightened the economic, financial and commercial blockade in the midst of the battle against the pandemic.

Foreign Minister Rodriguez himself stressed that Washington is taking advantage of Covid-19 to try to do as much damage as possible to Cuba.
