Summit Criticizes US Blockade on Cuba

HAVANA, October 6.- The 6th Summit of Heads of State and Government of Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP) questioned the application of extraterritorial legislation that violates International Law, such as the Helms-Burton Act, which strengthened the US blockade against Cuba in the 1990s. At the end of October the United Nations General Assembly will vote on the annual Cuban resolution demanding an end to the nearly half century blockade, which has cost the island’s economy well over US $90 billion.
