Havana, July 11 (RHC)-- Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Monday rejected comments by the U.S. Secretary of State, which confirm the direct involvement of the U.S. government in attempts to subvert order and peace in Cuba, in violation of international law.
Through his Twitter account, the foreign minister responded to a tweet published by Antony Blinken which reflects the support of the White House to the destabilizing actions occurred on July 11, 2021.
In his message, Blinken pointed out -- regarding the first year of the violent and vandalistic demonstrations on the island -- that the United States recognizes "the determination and courage of the Cuban people in their long struggle for democracy," and offered his government's support to these actions, their instigators and executors.
For his part, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel affirmed on that social network that the Cuban Revolution is made up of dignified and heroic people, who resist and create; that Cuba has resisted the hatred of the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States for more than 60 years, and in response creates daily a work of love.
The day before, in an exchange with journalists from national and international media, the head of state highlighted the victory of the Cuban people and its Revolution against the attempts of those who wanted to turn (that) into a soft coup, that nothing for the "Cuba variant" was a soft coup, it was a vandalic coup, and that was defeated, he said.
