Declaration of the Revolutionary Government
The Revolutionary Government strongly condemns the sabotage perpetrated against the power supply system in Venezuela, which is a terrorist action intended to harm the defenseless population of an entire nation and turn it into a hostage of the non-conventional war launched by the government of the United States against the legitimate government headed by comrade Nicolás Maduro Moros and the civic and military union of the Bolivarian and Chavista people.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs rejects in the strongest terms the new escalation in the US aggressive behavior against Cuba.
The US State Department announced today the decision to allow, as from March 19 this year, the filing of lawsuits before US courts under Title III of the Helms-Burton Act only against Cuban companies included in the List of Restricted Entities issued by that government on November of 2017, which was updated one year later. This arbitrary and illegitimate list, intended to tighten the blockade and expand its extraterritorial effects, forbids US citizens from engaging in direct financial transactions with the aforementioned entities.

To the Editor of CBC News
I reject categorically and in the strongest terms the tendentious and manipulative article "Canada at odds with Cuba 'ally' over Maduro's fate", written by journalist Evan Dyer and published today, Sunday, March 3, 2019, by CBC News.
Good journalism does not speculate, it informs objectively.
Ottawa, March 1, 2019.- On the morning of Thursday, February 28, Cuban Ambassador Josefina Vidal Ferreiro, gave an interview to Mr. Réjean Bourdeau from Québec French-language La Presse newspaper, at the Embassy of Cuba in Canada.
During the interview, the Ambassador Vidal Ferreiro commented on her most recent official visit to Québec City. She highlighted the traditional positive ties between Cuba and Québec —which have been consolidated after the signing in 2016 of the Joint Declaration between the Ministry of International Relations and La Francophonie of Québec and the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment and the opening of the Québec Office in Havana, in 2017— and referred to the existing potentials to broaden these relations in various areas.
