As the undersigning delegations, participants of the XXIII International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties in Izmir, Turkiye, October 2023:

We express our strongest condemnation of the unjust, illegal and inhumane economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the government of the United States on Cuba and demand, once again, its immediate and unconditional cessation.

We demand that the US government complies with the numerous UN General Assembly Resolutions condemning the blockade and demanding its elimination.

The blockade constitutes a flagrant, massive and systematic violation of the human rights of the Cuban people and is the main obstacle to the economic and social development of the country.

We reject the intensification of this criminal policy, including the adoption of 243 measures during the administration of Donald Trump, aimed at worsening the financial asphyxiation and the commercial encirclement, which remain unchanged until now.

We reject the unjust inclusion of Cuba in the spurious list of countries allegedly sponsoring terrorism, which has an intimidating and dissuasive character in financial matters for Cuba.

We condemn all attempts to destabilise the internal situation in Cuba, using instruments of unconventional warfare, subversion and media campaigns that seek the destruction of the Revolution and the elimination of the example that this country constitutes for the world.

We ratify our strongest solidarity and commitment to the Cuban people, the revolutionary government and the Communist Party of Cuba to preserve the sovereignty and independence of the country and to maintain firmly the decision of constructing socialism.

Down with the blockade!

Long live socialist Cuba!
