According to an official communiqué issued on the Cubadebate website, the institution emphasized the need to advance in a serious, respectful and adequate dialogue for the two sovereign territories.

‘Given that the sister nation has a new administration, we continue to advocate from Cuba, from our counterparts in the United States and the regional and international churches and faith-based organizations, for new policies of mutual understanding and cooperation,’ it referred.

The movement also rejected the report presented by the US State Department on March 30 on alleged human rights’ violations in Cuba. This document ‘once again dismisses the Cuban reality and its history,’ the religious organization insisted, and pointed out how those foreign relations policies affect mainly the families in Cuba and the American people, in addition to threatening ‘the construction of peaceful and harmonious relations in the region.’

In that sense, the Movement called for talks between both governments, the maintenance of peace and understanding, and an ‘international community duly focused on human development.’

According to Cuban authorities, Washington’s blockade constitutes a violation of human rights and the main obstacle to Cuba’s progress, with prolonged damages for six decades in excess of 144,413 million dollars.
