Consequently, the lower house of the Namibian bicameral parliament demanded the elimination of Cuba from that unilateral and unfounded designation.

In a statement to this effect, the legislature recognized the “substantial contributions of the people of the Republic of Cuba to international peace and security.”

Likewise, the Assembly underlined “Namibia’s commitment to international justice, equity and respect for the sovereign rights of nations.”

The Namibian legislators recall in the text how on May 15, Secretary of State Antony Blinken presented a report to Congress in which he excluded Cuba from his list of countries that allegedly do not fully cooperate with the anti-terrorist efforts of the United States.

However, the Namibian Assembly resolution highlights, the US government continues to unfairly label Cuba as a “State that sponsors terrorism,” an approach that, it emphasizes, “highlights the inconsistency and political nature of the designation process.” of the United States.”

This designation, the legislators highlight, not only misrepresents Cuba’s actions, but also serves as a pretext to impose coercive economic sanctions that severely impact the Cuban people in humanitarian and economic aspects.

These punitive measures from Washington, they add, limit Cuba’s ability to participate in international trade and access essential goods.

In its declaration, the National Assembly ratified the unbreakable solidarity with Cuba; the historical and lasting friendship between both peoples.

They also recalled Cuba’s support for Namibia during its struggle for independence and the permanent cooperation between the two nations in various fields.

Consequently, they urged the international community to unite to support the people of Cuba with a view to their exclusion from the arbitrary US list.

On April 16, the National Assembly of Namibia unanimously adopted a motion that demands “the cessation of the inhumane and unjustified economic blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba and its citizens.

On the occasion, he also demanded the “immediate elimination of Cuba from the list of States sponsoring terrorism and the prompt repeal of economic sanctions against the Cuban people,” and demanded the immediate and unconditional closure of the US base in the Cuban territory of Guantanamo Bay.
