COSTA DO SAUIPE, Brazil (Reuters) - Latin American leaders called on President-elect Barack Obama on Wednesday to lift the 46-year-old U.S. embargo against Cuba as soon as he takes office.
The leaders of 33 Latin American and Caribbean nations said the unilateral enforcement of sanctions was "unacceptable" and said Washington must comply with U.N. resolutions condemning the embargo imposed against Cuba at the height of the Cold War in 1962.
JG: This report from the Washington Post has errors of fact. The declaration issued at the end of the Bahia Summit, does not mention President-elect Barack Obama. It mentions the Government of the United States of America, which is solely responsible for the blockade of Cuba.
