U.S. Secretary of State disapproves of addition to anti-Cuban resolution

The U.S. Secretary of State, Colin Powell, has expressed reservations about an addition made by the Czech Republic to a resolution condemning human rights violations in Cuba. Mr Powell said that although the resolution was expected to be a priority at the Geneva human rights conference, the United States opposed the addition, which deems economic sanction against Cuba as counterproductive. There has been no reaction to Mr Powell's statement from the Czech Republic, which is intensively seeking support from countries in Latin America, following Poland's decision to withdraw as co-author of the resolution.
