The United Nations General Assembly on October 27, 2015 voted on a Cuban resolution calling for "an end to the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba." Approval was all but unanimous: 191 nations voted in favour and two voted against, the United States and Israel. There were no abstentions for the first time since the voting on the resolution began in 1992.
