US votes against UN resolution calling for end to Cuba embargo

Post by Admin on Tue Oct 27, 2015 11:31 pm

The US has voted to uphold its embargo with Cuba despite improved relations with the communist country. The move comes as Washington faces international criticism over the issue.

The US voted on Tuesday against a UN resolution calling for an end to its embargo with Cuba, nearly a year after the two former Cold War rivals announced the restoration of diplomatic ties.

The UN General Assembly voted 191-2 in support of ending the embargo, with only the US and Israel expressing their dissent.

The US has voted against the resolution every year for the past 24 years. There was speculation in the lead-up to this year's vote that it would abstain, in a clear sign that it was willing to continue mending relations with the communist country.

However, US deputy ambassador Ronald Godard made it clear that wouldn't happen when, prior to the vote, he told the assembly Cuba was "mistaken" if it thought this resolution would improve relations between the two countries.
