Mexico sends much-needed Fuel and Food to Cuba

Fuel tanker owned by Mexico's Pemex on its way to Cuba, sources.  Pemex ship is due to arrive in Cuba’s Havana port on Monday.

Mexico’s president asserted his country’s right to send food and fuel to Cuba and said U.S. sanctions on the island were “inhumane” after a diesel cargo shipped by Mexico’s state-run oil company Petroleos Mexicanos.

Diesel is a much-needed commodity on the Island of Cuba, as most of the power plants are using fuel oil and crude, the Cuban power plants are struggling to keep the lights on and are in need of maintenance, but have been unable to get spare parts due in large part to sanctions, as the country suffers from America’s 60+ year embargo.

Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador criticized the “inhumane embargo” the U.S. has against Cuba. The Mexican President has pledged Humanitarian support for the island.

Mexico’s President also called Cuba a symbol of resistance. AMLO also said the Island deserved a world heritage designation.
