Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba condemns interventionist policy of the United States


Havana, May 23 (RHC) The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, criticized today on his Twitter profile, the high humanitarian cost of the US interventionist policy.

The highest representative of the island's diplomacy stated in the publication that, according to the Watson Institute, at least 4.5 million people died as a result of the wars waged by the northern power in its crusade against terrorism since 2001.

Washington once again included Cuba today in its unilateral list of countries that supposedly do not cooperate with antiterrorist efforts, despite the opinion of prestigious intellectuals and political personalities who from that country consider the description as a slander.

In an executive order disclosed in the US Federal Register, which will be transmitted to the Congress of that nation, Cuba appears along with Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Syria for allegedly not complying with the standards dictated by Washington on the subject.

Recently, Democratic representative Jim McGovern, and Patrick Leahy, former president pro tempore of the Senate, advocated in a writing published in The Boston Globe newspaper to banish any attempt to link Cuba to that scourge.

Other personalities, such as the academic William LeoGrande, supported such a claim and regretted that the administration of Democrat Joe Biden has promised for two years to reconsider the designation without ultimately modifying anything.

In addition to the financial damage, the designation as a State sponsor of terrorism adds insults to the wound suffered by the island for decades, estimated the intellectual, who recalled that since 1959 Cuba has been the victim of hundreds of attacks of this type perpetrated since then.

In 2015, President Barack Obama (2009-2017) removed Cuba from that list. However, Republican Donald Trump (2017-2021) included it again during the last days of his term. After more than half of the Biden government, the island remains in that category. (Source: Prensa Latina)
