The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, presented this Thursday, at a press conference, the Cuba Report on the impact caused by the US blockade policy during the last year.
Due to the complex epidemiological situation at the global level and in particular in the US, the resolution entitled "Need to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba" will be presented for the twenty-ninth time during the session resumed from the 75th session of the General Assembly, in May 2021.
The U.S. Agency for International Development has made several payments in recent weeks to "institutions" that the State Department uses to spearhead its subversive policy against the island. If the allocation of a single dollar by the U.S. government, to finance subversive projects in Cuba, is sufficient reason for outrage, how can hundreds of thousands every day, millions over the years for such purposes escape condemnation?.
For more than 5 months Cuba has been expecting some explanation or official reaction from the U.S. Government on the terrorist attack against its Embassy in Washington. That event occurred on the 30th of April 2020. A Cuban citizen permanently residing in U.S. territory using an assault automatic AK-47 rifle lunched 32 bullets against the Cuban Embassy. Fortunately there were no casualties amongst the Cuban diplomats, although its main building was damaged.
DECLARATION OF THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF CUBA. The Cuban people and the international community are aware of the dishonest campaign that the government of the United States has launched since 2019 to discredit Cuba’s international medical cooperation; exert pressure on the governments that have asked for it and deprive peoples of these health services. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba denounces that, as part of that offensive, the US government has unleashed an array of pressures and blackmails against the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO).
