He urged the governments of the continent to defend the self-determination of the peoples and non-interference, and not to back up the show that is intended to be staged in a few days.
“In this difficult moment of pandemic, the only way to support the people and Cuban government is to express our solidarity and to demand the lifting of the cruel and inhumane blockade which is the main violation to the Human Rights”, he stated
Closely acquainted with the situation of the besieged Caribbean country, he expressed full confidence that the planned provocation will not succeed because, he said, “I know that there is enough moral strength to overcome difficulties”.
For the Uruguayan leftist politician “the problems are undeniable, but just as there is courage to recognize them, there is also will to solve them and move forward”.
