Statement by the National Assembly of the People’s Power

HAVANA, Cuba, June 5 (acn) Up next, we bring you the declaration made by the National Assembly
of the People’s Power (Parliament) published by the Granma newspaper on Saturday:

STATEMENT

   Several days have passed since the Israeli Army launched its premeditated and criminal
attack against the fleet that was taking to the Gaza Strip -a Palestinian territory subjected
to a cruel and inhuman military blockade- very much needed humanitarian help, in a supreme
gesture of solidarity.
   Governments, parliaments and institutions from many parts of the world have denounced the
assassination perpetrated, and have demanded that the international community to express its
strongest condemnation of this action carried out by the Israeli government.
   The statement by the UN Security Council, in spite of regretting what has happened and
asking for an impartial investigation, does not vigorously condemn Israel and does not mention
the need to put an end, unconditionally, to the prolonged siege laid to the Gaza Strip.
   The Commission for International Relations of the National Assembly of the People’s Power
of the Republic of Cuba considers that the only solution possible is that the Israeli
government immediately puts an end to the blockade of the Gaza Strip and that the inalienable
right of the Palestinian people to create an independent State in its legitimate territories
prevails.
   It is urgent to prevent, by way of the most determined action of the international
community, serious crimes like these remaining unpunished, and that the use of time-wasting
strategies on the part of Israel and its allies makes it possible to maintain, and even
intensify in the future, the current and unsustainable situation of the Palestinian people.
