For the record

For the record, below is a list of the 51 nations that supported an amendment moved by Australia during yesterday’s vote at the United Nations on the US commercial embargo against the Castro regime.

The amendment, which would have included references to the regime’s appalling human rights record and a call for all political prisoners on the island to be freed, was defeated 126 votes to 51.

Still, it infuriated the Castro representatives in New York – and their masters back in Havana, who accused the Australian Government of being a “puppet” of the Americans, blah, blah, blah … The usual crap.

So, those who supported the amendment, in no particular order:

Israel

Japan
Marshall Island

Micronesia
Palau
South Korea
Andorra
Australia
Austria
Belgium
Canada
Cyprus
Denmark
Spain
US
Finland
France
Greece
Ireland
Iceland
Luxembourg
Malta
Monaco
New Zealand,
Netherlands
Portugal
UK
Germany
San Marino
Sweden
Albania
Bosnia-Herzegovina
Bulgaria
Croatia
Czech Republic
Slovakia
Slovenia
Estonia
Georgia
Hungary
Latvia
Lithuania
Macedonia
Moldova
Montenegro
Poland
Romania
and Serbia.
