Havana: Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, reacting to an Americas summit on Monday, urged US President Barack Obama to end a nearly half-a-century-old US economic “blockade” of Cuba.
“I would like to remind him of an elementary ethical principal that has to do with Cuba,” Castro wrote about Obama on the website Cubadebate.
“Continued injustice or crime cannot be justified regardless of the era, in which it has occurred,” Caribbean island nation’s revolutionary leader continued.
“The cruel blockade against the Cuban people costs lives and results in human suffering.”
