Mexico City, Mexico.- The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, today rejected the economic, commercial and financial blockade that the US government has applied to Cuba for more than half a century.

To a question from a journalist in his press conference at the National Palace about voting at the United Nations, where 187 countries once again condemned Washington’s aggressive measure against the island, the president reiterated the traditional policy of Mexico.

We always maintain our policy of not accepting the blockade of Cuba or any other country and that is how the representative of Mexico acted in the UN General Assembly, he said.

That position – he reiterated – part of the Mexican foreign policy tradition and our delegation voted in that regard in the Assembly in accordance with the principles.
