UN condemns US embargo on Cuba, for 29th time; Israel opposes resolution

The UN General Assembly condemns the nearly 60-year-old US embargo on Cuba for the 29th year in a row, calling for it to end by a vote of 184 to two.

Only Israel votes with the US against the resolution. Three other US allies: Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and Colombia abstain.

Brazil, which voted with the United States in 2019, does not vote. The vote was canceled last year due to coronavirus for the first time since 1992.
