The Agencies of the Central State Administration in Cuba have started the drafting process of a report on the effects of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba, between March 2023 and February 2024.

The tightened genocidal blockade continues to be the main hurdle for the development and welfare of the Cuban people, said the Cuban Foreign Affairs Ministry (Minrex).

Minrex said the meeting, held at the Foreign Ministry headquarters, was attended by Anayansi Rodriguez Camejo, deputy foreign minister.

Rodriguez Camejo described the process as hard and meticulous.

On the basis of the Trading with the Enemy Act and the Foreign Assistance Act, on February 7, 1962, during the administration of John F Kennedy, an executive order entered into force imposing the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba.

Cuba said in addition to economic asphyxiation, it promoted political isolation at the regional and international level.
