This afternoon, the U.S. government called a press conference to slander Cuba in the UN’s Economic and Social Council hall. As the meeting concluded, a teleSUR correspondent stated, “This is the environment. The meeting is over. The hall almost empty. Very few of those invited by the U.S.”
The United States intends to defend, by any means, its unilateral policy of economic blockade, which is the object of universal condemnation, and violates international law.
The Director General in charge of the United States Carlos Fernández de Cossío alerted that in recent months the US government has escalated its hostile rhetoric against Cuba. “It makes use of reiterated statements from high level officials aimed at manufacturing pretexts that steer toward a climate of greater bilateral tension”, said the official.
