Resolution on Cuba
Meeting of the Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, Santiago, Chile, 30-31 May 1997
The Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, SICLAC, meeting in Santiago, Chile on 30-31 May 1997, is concerned at the continuing operation of the HelmsBurton Act against the Republic of Cuba. This measure of the United States Government constitutes a flagrant infringement of international norms. The Committee likewise considers that keeping up the economic blockade against that country actually presents an obstacle to any attempts towards Cuba's peaceful transition to democratic methods.
Lastly, SICLAC calls on the Cuban authorities to promote measures aimed at moving towards democratic forms of government.
