WASHINGTONU.S. Congressman James P. McGovern (D-MA), Chairman of the House Rules Committee and Co-Chair of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, released the following statement in response to the Biden administration’s vote against a United Nations General Assembly resolution calling for the U.S. to end its decades-long economic embargo on Cuba:

“I am incredibly disappointed by this decision. Continuing Trump’s backwards, irrational, and cruel approach to Cuba hurts the U.S. and Cuban people and prevents honest dialogue between our countries. Obama got it—he knew failed Cold-War policy held the U.S. back and he put us on a path toward diplomacy and constructive engagement. I strongly urge President Biden to change course.”
