UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly urged the United States on Tuesday to end its 44-year-old trade embargo against Cuba, a call U.S. Ambassador John Bolton dismissed as ''a complete exercise in irrelevancy.''
It was the 14th straight year that the 191-member world body approved a resolution calling for the U.S. economic and commercial embargo against Cuba to be repealed ''as soon as possible.''
The United States, Israel, Palau and the Marshall Islands voted against the resolution, while Micronesia abstained. Four countries did not indicate any position at all -- El Salvador, Iraq, Morocco and Nicaragua.
WHY DO WE DEAL WITH THE U.N.? U.S. OUT OF THE U.N. Or better yet U.N. OUT OF THE U.S.
