Morales criticized the measures adopted by Washington and described them as ‘the worst attack on the principles of sovereign equality of the States.’
He also called for non-intervention and non-interference by the United States in internal affairs, because ‘they violate the rights to freedom of commerce and navigation,’ he said.
On November 1, during the presentation at the United Nations of the draft resolution entitled ‘Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America on Cuba’, the permanent representative of Bolivia, Sacha Llorenti, asked for the total lifting of that measure.
Llorenti affirmed that the blockade of Cuba is unjust, immoral and illegitimate, and an example of the United States’ unilaterality.
‘The United States imposes a blockade that contravenes the UN Charter, undermines the principles of sovereignty and attempts to undermine the Cuban people’s self-determination,’ he stressed. (Prensa Latina)
