Dramatic Change in Israel-Cuba Relations

Israel will join the US in no longer opposing pro-Cuba resolution at UN General Assembly

By |

For the first time in 25 years, Israel will change its voting pattern regarding Cuba in the UN General Assembly.

At the upcoming vote on the resolution calling on the US to end its sanctions against Cuba, a resolution that has been presented annually for the past 25 years, both Israel and the US will change their vote from “against” to “abstain.”

Regarding this change, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said:

“Israel welcomes this progress in relations between the US and Cuba and hopes it will open a new chapter for this region. America has no greater ally than the State of Israel, and we will continue our close cooperation, also at the UN.”

For the past quarter century, Israel was the only nation to consistently join the US in voting against the annual resolution calling for an end to sanctions against Cuba, resulting in hostile relations between the Jewish state and the Caribbean nation.
