A representation of the Cuban citizens residing in the United States met in this Fourth National Meeting, in Washington DC, four days prior to the vote at the United Nations of a Resolution that will urge the lifting of the US blockade against Cuba, a policy that affects us all both on the Island and abroad. This Meeting has taken place eight days after the regional meetings of Cuban residents in Europe and Latin America. We welcome the agreements announced in both meetings.
