Ros-Lehtinen: As UN refuses to hold Cuba accountable for smuggling arms to N. Korea, U.S. should work to sanction violators

From the offices of U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL):

U.N. Refuses to Hold Cuba Accountable for Illegally Smuggling Arms to North Korea; U.S. Should Work to Sanction Violators, Says Ros-Lehtinen

“Instead of a slap on the wrist, our country should submit a list of Cuban officials and enterprises involved in this illegal operation to be sanctioned by the United Nations. We must show we will not turn a blind eye to conduct that only serves to assist those who would do us harm. Otherwise, we should further sanction them ourselves.”

(WASHINGTON) – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, made the following statement regarding reports that members of the United Nations are preparing to submit an implementation assistance notice to Cuba for its role in the trafficking of military equipment to North Korea. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“Weak does not begin to describe the laughable ‘sanction’ that news reports have indicated the U.N. is planning on proposing for Cuba’s role in trafficking military equipment to North Korea. Let's not forget that this is the largest intercepted shipment of weapons to North Korea since U.N. Security Council sanctions were implemented in 2006. This is yet another example of the Castro regime gaming the international community for its own political agenda. With this feckless proposal, the U.N. has again shown that it is becoming little more than a club for dictators who, if they violate the rules, face little to no sanction. Instead of a slap on the wrist, the Obama administration should submit a list of Cuban officials and enterprises involved in this illegal operation to be sanctioned by the United Nations. We must show we will not turn a blind eye to conduct that only serves to assist those who would do us harm. Otherwise, the U.S. should further sanction these entities ourselves.”
