UN Welcomes New Step in Cuba-USA Rapprochement

The UN welcomed today the progress in the rapprochement between Cuba and the United States, on occasion of the visit by President Barack Obama to the Island.

In his daily press conference, the Un Deputy Spokesperson, Farhan Haq, said “any step to contnirute to a normalization of relations would be welcomed.”

Haq recalled the resolutions approved in the General Assembly in the past few years about this bilateral issue, referring to initiatives aimed to demand the lifting of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on Cuba for over half a century, which is considered the main obstacle for normal links.

Obama kicked off yesterday a three-day visit to Cuba, the first by a US president in nearly 90 years, as part of the process of rapprochement he announced simultaneously on Dec.17, 2014, with President Raul Castro.

The two presidents met today in Havana.
