The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, during a press conference yesterday, called on the United Nations (UN) to back the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people and not allow, under any circumstances, interference in the internal affairs of that nation, or violations of international law.

Unilateral, illegal measures, such as those being taken against the sister Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, along with an aggressive communications and political campaign, are generally the prelude to larger-scale actions by the U.S. government, Rodríguez noted.

Cuba calls for a mobilization for peace, against imperialist intervention in Latin America, against war, setting aside political or ideological differences. "In these circumstances you can only be in favor of peace and against war," the minister said.

U.S. military adventure against Venezuela must be stopped

The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba condemns the escalation of pressures and actions by the U.S. government in preparation for a military adventure under the guise of a “humanitarian intervention” in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and calls on the international community to mobilize in order to prevent its consummation.

Between February 6 and 10 of 2019, several military transport aircraft have flown to the Rafael Miranda Airport in Puerto Rico, the San Isidro Air Base in the Dominican Republic, and other strategically located Caribbean Islands, most certainly without the knowledge of the governments of those nations. These flights took off from U.S. military facilities where Special Operation Troops and U.S. Marine Corps units operate. These units have been used for covert operations, even against leaders of other countries.

Media and political circles - including within the U.S. - have revealed that extremist figures of the government with a long history of actions and slander aimed at causing or instigating wars, such as John Bolton, U.S. National Security Advisor; and Mauricio Claver-Carone, Director of the National Security Council’s Office of Western Hemisphere Affairs, counting on the connivance of Marco Rubio, Senator of the anti-Cuban mafia in Florida, designed, directly and thoroughly organized, and funded, from their posts in Washington, the attempted coup d’etat in Venezuela by means of the illegal self-proclamation of a President.

They are the same individuals who, either personally or through the State Department, have been exerting brutal pressures on numerous governments to force them to support the arbitrary call for new Presidential elections in Venezuela, while promoting recognition for the usurper who barely won 97,000 votes as a parliamentarian, against the more than 6 million Venezuelans who elected Constitutional President Nicolás Maduro Moros last May.

After the resistance mounted by the Bolivarian and Chavista people against the coup, evidenced by the mass demonstrations in support of President Maduro, and the loyalty of the National Bolivarian Armed Forces, the U.S. government has intensified its international political and media campaign, and strengthened unilateral economic coercive measures against Venezuela, among them the freezing of Venezuelan funds in third countries banks, worth billions of dollars, and the theft of the this sister nation’s oil revenue, causing serious humanitarian damage and harsh deprivation to its people.

One hundred sixty-six years after his birth, José Martí is still present.

Georgetown, 26 January 2019.  The National Hero of Cuba, José Martí Pérez, was born on January 28, 1853, his life and work transcend our borders, he is recognized as the most universal of Cubans, thus was remembered in an act celebrated in the headquarters of the Cuban Embassy in Guyana with the presence of collaborators of health and education in this sister nation, Cuban residents, friends of solidarity and workers of the Cuban Embassy. 

The Cuban Ambassador Narciso Reinaldo Amador Socorro, recalled that Marti's thought today is fully valid against the imperialist onslaught on our lands of America, at the insistence of the United States to seize Cuba, in the attempt of coup d'etat to the sister Republic of Venezuela to which he ratified the total support of our country.
