General Assembly Hall

For the twenty-second time, delegates at the United Nations General Assembly voted to end the United States embargo against Cuba.

On Tuesday, the Assembly debated a resolution which called for "the necessity to end the economic, commercial and financial embargo" on the Caribbean island country.

188 Member States voted in favour of the resolution, with only the US and Israel voting against it. Micronesia, Palau and the Marshall Islands abstained.
