UN General Assembly votes again for end to US embargo on Cuba

The UN General Assembly voted for an end to the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States against Cuba, for the 28th consecutive year.
 
During a vote held on Wednesday, 187 Member States underlined their support for the resolution while Brazil and Israel joined the US in voting no.
 
Two countries—Colombia and Ukraine—abstained.
 
The embargo is rooted in the Cold War, when Fidel Castro and his revolutionaries seized power.
