Haley on Cuba Embargo Measure at UN: ‘Our Principles Are Not Up For a Vote’


Recommended Posts


(CNSNews.com) – As long as the Castro regime continues to deny the Cuban people freedom, the United States does not fear isolation at the United Nations or anywhere else, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley told the world body Wednesday, as the U.S. voted against an annual resolution calling for an end to the U.S. embargo on Cuba.
“Our principles are not up for a vote,” Haley declared. “They are enshrined in our Constitution. They also happen to be enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.”
“As long as we are members of the United Nations, we will stand for respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms that the member states of this body have pledged to protect – even if we have to stand alone.”:snip:
