Havana, Jun 4 (RHC) A small group of Members of the European Parliament who responds to Washington's agenda has managed to include in the next Plenary Assembly of the European Parliament on June 8, an item on the political situation and human rights in Cuba.

The International Relations Committee of the National Assembly of People's Power of the Republic of Cuba issued a statement denouncing that action.

According to a statement by the Committee posted on the Cuban Parliament's website, those MEPs are trying to have a resolution adopted against Cuba, distorting reality. At the same time, they are desperately trying to break the ties that currently guide relations between the Caribbean island and the European Union.

Likewise, they are trying to undermine the implementation of the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement currently in place on the basis of mutual respect and equality between both, the statement of the Cuban deputies indicated.

 "We are not surprised by such actions; they are typical of the double standards that animate and characterize those MEPs," the Parliament's note stressed.

They appear to be concerned about the exercise of human rights in Cuba, a free, independent, sovereign, democratic country of social justice and human solidarity, where  its people decide its  destiny and where, following an inviolable Marti's principle, enshrined in the Constitution, the first law of the Republic is the worship of Cubans to the full dignity of man.

The text remarked that it is curious that, while uneasy and concerned about human rights in Cuba, those lawmakers have not summoned the European Parliament to analyze the main violation of those guarantees suffered by the Cuban people:  the genocidal blockade imposed on the Caribbean country for 62 years and intensified to incredible limits amid a pandemic and a world economic crisis; a blockade that also affects the citizens of Europe, especially its businessmen.
