All the Protocol observed
Ladies and Gentlemen:
Your Excellencies permanent representatives;
U.S. citizens and Cubans resident in the United States who are present in this hall:
I would like to express to the people and government of the United States; Mayor Bill De Blasio; Governor Andrew Cuomo; and other authorities in New York; as well as its citizens and especially families of the victims, our most heartfelt condolences, in the name of the Cuban people and government, for the terrorist attack which occurred yesterday afternoon.
In its Tuesday edition from October 24th , in the section titled "More Headlines News" the Liberian newspaper The New Dawn published the article "Cuban Embassy here wants U.S blockade lifting". The libel is based on information transmitted the previous day at a press conference by the Chargé d'Affaires of Cuba in Liberia, Yordenis Despaigne Vera, on the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed for more than fifty years, unilaterally, by the government of the United States against Cuba.
In the framework of the International Campaign to Support Cuba against the Blockade that takes place annually in October, the Cuban Chargé d'Affaires in Liberia, Yordenis Despaigne Vera, presented a draft resolution 71/5 entitled "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba".
