AS DELIVERED

Thank you.

You know the ugliest part of today with this annual affair in the General Assembly, that people can peddle this fiction that  the Cuban regime is powerless. I mean just like that, they’ve got a choice that they could end the hunger. They could most certainly help the people there that are sick by allowing their physicians to heal the people in their own country and to allow for freedom of expression.

And the U.S. will not take responsibility for the human rights abuses caused by the Cuban regime.

Thank you so much. Thanks.
