French communist leader urges Biden to stop blockade against Cuba

Translated Friday 4 December 2020

Paris, Dec 3 (Prensa Latina) Fabien Roussel, National Secretary of the French Communist Party (PCF, in French language), on Thursday urged US President-Elect Joe Biden to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba and take the path of peace.

Speaking to Prensa Latina, Roussel, who is also a deputy for the Nord Department, expressed his hope that the former vice president would commit to a different stance than his predecessor in the White House, Donald Trump, who tightened the siege imposed to the Caribbean island six decades ago.

We hope Biden is towards a real peace with Cuba, because in these times of Covid-19, we need that the tensions and blockades end, said the top leader of the PCF, a harsh critic of Washington’s aggressiveness against the Caribbean nation and other countries.

According to Roussel, the world demands a return to peace to prioritize the fight against the pandemic, without restrictions that prevent economies from focusing efforts on patient care, healthcare systems and access to the vaccine.

We do not need blockades or wars and we do need a joint effort, that is our call to Biden, he stressed.
