Beijing, Mar 5 (Prensa Latina) China today reaffirmed its opposition to unilateral U.S. sanctions against Cuba, Russia, Iran and Venezuela, after denouncing the socioeconomic impact of these measures in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Wang Wenbin, Foreign Ministry spokesman, urged Washington to listen to the international community's call in this regard and immediately lift the coercive policies, imposed under the pretext of human rights.

'Such movements are widely criticized (...) The facts show that unilateral sanctions undermine the economic and political order and the system of global governance,' he said.

According to the Foreign Ministry spokesman, in this way the White House undermines the efforts of these nations to mobilize resources, expand the economy and improve the welfare of the population.

He described this position as a threat to the right to life, self-determination and development, but also as a continuous, systematic and large-scale violation of human rights.

'With the Covid-19 pandemic, unilateral sanctions led to shortages of medicine and food for tens of millions of people, put health and life at risk, especially for vulnerable groups, and exacerbated poverty, hunger and inequality,' he added.
