France Favors End of US Blockade Against Cuba

French President Francois Hollande reiterated today his position in favor of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba for over half a century.

During a reception at the Elysee Palace on the occasion of Latin America and the Caribbean Week in France, he said that he will continue to call for the lifting of the US unilateral blockade. It is time to lift it definitely, he added.

Hollande recalled his official visit to Cuba in May 2015 and Cuban President Raul Castro’s the state visit to France in February 2016, where they agreed to strengthen the bilateral ties.
