The statement by the Assembly’s International Relations Commission, published on its website, was made after the European Parliament debated the situation in Cuba for the third time.
According to the Assembly, the EP resolution condemning Cuba lies about the alleged cases of torture, mistreatment and degrading acts against human rights defenders, a way to refer to people paid and sponsored by the United States with the aim of subverting constitutional order in Cuba.
Cuba’s statement emphasized the stale language and the interventionist terms used, which would not be deserving of attention were it not for the fact that they are part of the attempt to isolate Cuba internationally, subjected to an unconventional warfare, and aiming at creating a change in Cuba’s political system contrary to the Constitution.
This attitude makes the European Parliament look less credible, the statement stressed, and contrasts this with the relations of mutual respect between Cuba and the European Union.
The National Assembly questioned that the said resolution avoids pronouncing regarding true violations of human rights in Europe, the United States, Israel and other countries, or the US blockade against Cuba.
It thanked the position of denounciation and ethics taken by 150 European lawmakers who opposed the injustice, and 119 others who did not back it up.
