Cuba to denounce US blockade in Internet forum
www.chinaview.cn 2004-10-02 11:33:52

    HAVANA, Oct. 1 (Xinhuanet) -- The Cuban government will hold six fora on the Internet on Oct. 6 to denounce the blockade imposed by the United States against the island for over four decades, according to a statement by the Cuban Foreign Ministry.

    The statement said that Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez will participate in the event on the website www.forumcubaminrex.co.cu.

    It will be the third time for Perez to speak at such a forum to criticize Washington's hostile policy against Havana.

    At the forum, the minister is expected to refer to a report, the Need to End the Economic, Commercial and Financial Blockade by the United States Against Cuba, which will be presented to and debated and voted at the United Nations on Oct. 28.

    It is Cuba's 13th report calling for an end to the US blockade.

    Last year, 179 UN members supported the report, three -- the United States, Israel and the Marshall Islands -- voted against and two abstained.

    According to the Cuban government, Cuba has lost about 80 billion US dollars owing to this "brutal policy" of the United States. Enditem
