Caricom renews call to end Cuba trade embargo

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

GEORGETOWN—The Caribbean Community (Caricom) grouping yesterday renewed a call for the United States to end its decades old trade embargo against Cuba as the region reiterated its desire to main a close relationship with the Spanish-speaking Caribbean country.


“Caricom knows well the value of unity on the international front given that co-ordination of foreign policy is one of the pillars of our integration movement. We have, as a bloc, joined with like-minded states to both advance and protect our interests and support causes and initiatives of priority concern to us.


“This is why we have consistently supported United Nations resolutions aimed at ending the US embargo on Cuba and will continue to do so,” Caricom Secretary general Irwin la Rocque said as he accepted the credentials of Cuba’s fourth Plenipotentiary Representative, Julio Cesar Gonzalez Marchante.
