HAVANA, Cuba – European Union (EU) High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini criticized the US blockade against Cuba on Wednesday.

The comments were made during a speech at the University of Havana.

“We reject the North American sanctions against your citizens, companies and European interests,” Mogherini said. 

“We cannot accept unilateral measures that impede or restrict our economic and commercial relations with Cuba”, Mogherini continued.

The US has had sanctions on Cuba since 1958 in reaction to the success of the Cuban Revolution against a US-backed dictator.
