‘Blockade on Cuba must be fully lifted’ – McCallion

Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has reiterated calls for the US to lift its ‘unjust’ blockade on Cuba. 
 
The Foyle MP was commenting after meeting with Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel in London today. 
 
Elisha McCallion said:
 
“Sinn Féin has long stood in solidarity with the Cuban Government and the Cuban people.
 
“The icons of the Cuban revolution continue to inspire people around the world who struggle for equality and justice.
 
“The continued unjust economic blockade of Cuba by the US administration is of grave concern and we hope that relations between Cuba and the US continue to improve in the future. 
 
“It’s important that we continue to improve and deepen Ireland’s economic and cultural relationship with Cuba through our close links to Cuban Ambassador to Ireland. 
 
“I used today’s meeting with the Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel to reiterate our call for the blockade on Cuba to be fully lifted.” CRÍOCH/ENDS
