(2015-06-29) on Friday received the Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister, Rogerio Sierra.
Sierra was in Maputo to attend Thursday’s celebrations of the 40th anniversary of Mozambican independence.
Sierra thanked Mozambique for its diplomatic support of Cuba’s efforts to end the United States blockade of the island, which has now entered its sixth decade. He announced that the Cuban government intends, once again, to put a resolution before the United Nations calling for the lifting of the blockade.
“We express our gratitude to the people of Mozambique for supporting our struggle for the elimination of the blockade imposed by the United States”, Sierra said. “Despite the process of re-establishing diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States, the blockade remains in force, and so we shall move a resolution In the UN to lift the blockade”.
US President Barack Obama gives every sign of wishing to improve US relations with Cuba, but faces strong opposition inside the US Congress. Obama did, however, succeed in removing Cuba from the list of countries that supposedly sponsor terrorism. The administration of Ronald Reagan had put Cuba on that list in 1982.
During his meeting with Rosario, Sierra also expressed Cuba’s wish to expand and broaden its relations with Mozambique.
