UN votes overwhelmingly to condemn US embargo on Cuba
The UN General Assembly backed a resolution for an end to US embargo on Cuba by 189-2 in a slap to Washington
Out of the 193-member body, 189 countries voted in favour of the resolution at the 27th annual General Assembly meeting, with only the US and Israel voting against. Moldova and Ukraine did not vote.
The resolutions are unenforceable, but they reflect world opinion and the vote has given Cuba an annual stage for the last 27 years to demonstrate the isolation of the US on the embargo imposed in 1960.
