The island's foreign minister pointed out that in 2019 alone, some 53 vessels and 27 companies were blacklisted by the White House.

These measures persist in the midst of the complex scenario of the confrontation with Covid-19, which has caused, in his words, "a significant impact on the national economy."

The persecution of these vessels constitutes a demonstration of the extraterritorial nature of the economic, commercial and financial blockade, which successive US administrations have imposed and maintained on Cuba for more than sixty years.

Between 2019 and 2020, the US Departments of the Treasury and Commerce, in accordance with the hostile directive towards Cuba of the Donald Trump government, imposed changes in the regulations of the blockade aimed at intensifying its effects.

The actions of harassment and commercial and financial siege in third countries have caused severe damage to the Caribbean nation, beyond the economic ones, since they are reflected in the same way, in sectors as sensitive as health, education, and science and technology, among others.
