Mikdad condemns US decision to extend so-called “Trading with Enemy Act” that targets Cuba

Damascus, SANA- Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Dr. Fayssal Mikdad, has condemned the decision of US President Joe Biden to extend the so-called (Trading with the Enemy Act) that targets Cuba.

Mikdad’s remarks came in a tweet published on the account of the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry on Tuesday.

“The policies of economic blockade and the imposition of unilateral coercive measures not only violate international law and contravene the will of the member states of the United Nations, but have proven futile and have catastrophic effects on peoples,” Mikdad said.

Cuba had condemned the United States’ decision to extend the (Trading with the Enemy Act) for another year, a measure that tightens the unjust embargo imposed on Cuba for more than 60 years.

Commenting on the US decision, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said in a tweet: “The crime lasted a long time, but the Cuban revolution will survive it.”
