547. 11/13/2002

“November 13 [2002]. For the 11th straight year, the UN [United Nations] General Assembly overwhelmingly approves a resolution asking the US to end the 40-plus-years embargo against Cuba. The vote is 173 in favor of the resolution and 3 against (US, Israel, Marshall Islands), with no abstentions. European nations expressed objection to the embargo, citing US penalties on countries and companies doing business with Cuba as ‘extraterritorial,’ and saying that the embargo is a bilateral issue between the US and Cuba and should not be imposed on others.” [Con Embargo]
