Rest of world wants end of US embargo of Cuba

Popular Resistance -The UN General Assembly backed a resolution for an end to US embargo on Cuba by 189-2 in a slap to Washington.

The United Nations General Assembly has overwhelmingly backed a resolution condemning the US economic embargo on Cuba after rejecting proposed US amendments criticising the communist nation on its human rights record.

Out of the 193-member body, 189 countries voted in favour of the resolution at the 27th annual General Assembly meeting, with only the US and Israel voting against. Moldova and Ukraine did not vote.
