Statement of the SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance Sector of International and European Affairs
One of the last acts of Donald Trump as US President was to list again Cuba “among the States Sponsoring Terrorism”.
The International and European Affairs Sector of SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance party, knows only of one recent “terrorist” activity of Cuba, which was sending doctors and medical staff to more than thirty countries in order to confront the ongoing deadly pandemic. Italy, a G7 country, was first to receive such a solidarity mission.
Sharing the concerns expressed by the European Left (EL) for the above mentioned cold war style Trump decision, we hope that the new US Biden administration will cancel it.
Cuba has itself to deal with formidable problems, including the pandemic and deserves like every developing country the international solidarity, not sanctions.
