USA and Cuba

The USA imposes a trade embargo on Cuba and bans its own citizens from visiting.

The USA attempts to persuade and coerce other countries to join the boycott of Cuba, saying that the country is a threat to the Western Hemisphere. A Mexican diplomat responds with "If we publicly declare that Cuba is a threat to our security, forty million Mexicans will die laughing".
