During the vote, several countries—including Iran, Bolivia, Mexico, and India—praised Cuba for its recent efforts in fighting the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa. The island nation sent more than 600 doctors to Sierra Leone and the surrounding region, actions that the World Health Organization said were some of the “most important” contributions by a single country.

U.S. envoy Ronald Godard dismissed Tuesday’s resolution, saying the Cuban government uses the vote to “attempt to shift blame” for economic problems that are the country’s own creation.

Despite Godard’s statement, even opinions in Washington are increasingly divided. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for the embargo to be lifted, stating in her book Hard Choices that it is no longer useful to American interests.

The U.S. imposed the embargo on the communist island in 1960.
