Czech diplomats seek support for anti-Cuban resolution

Czech diplomats are continuing in their efforts to gain support for a resolution condemning human rights violations in Cuba. The Czech Republic is intensively seeking support from countries in Latin America, following Poland's decision to withdraw as co-author of the resolution, to be submitted to the UN human rights Commission. The United States Secretary of State Colin Powell described the resolution as a priority at the Geneva human rights conference. He said though that the United States had difficulties with an addition to the resolution which deems economic sanctions against Cuba as counterproductive.
