Dili, Nov 7 (Prensa Latina) In a message addressed to US President Elect Barack Obama Timor Leste President Jose Ramos Horta asked him to lift the blockade of Cuba.
In an official note published on Friday, Ramos-Horta said he expected a change in Washington's foreign policy and that the new administration should immediately lift the trade blockade and sanctions against Cuba.
The economic blockade of the most powerful nation against the small nation is immoral and politically senseless, affirmed Timor Leste's head of State.
He also emphasized that Obama's election means a change of direction in US history, a victory of liberty and justice that shows that the US society has left discrimination and exclusion in the past.
He also said that the president elect would have to face urgently the current financial crisis caused by the incompetence and irresponsibility of that country's executive leaders, and he would have to fight the increasing extreme poverty in emerging nations.
