The U.N. General Assembly, in a 91-6 vote, passed a resolution urging the United States to lift its trade embargo against Nicaragua. The resolution said the embargo, imposed last May, "adversely affects" Nicaragua's economy and hampers its development. U.S. Ambassador Vernon A. Walters told the assembly that the embargo was imposed in retaliation for Nicaragua's "aggression against its neighbors." Voting with the United States against the measure were Gambia, Grenada, Israel, Sierra Leone and St. Christopher and Nevis.
