Cuban president rejects US sanctions against officials

Havana, Jan 7 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Friday rejected the new sanctions announced by the United States against eight officials as part of Washington's hostile policy against Cuba.

When there are no more screws to turn, punishment comes with names and surnames. Although they have never stopped doing it against the entire Cuban people. Cuba’s dignity is the problem, the president wrote on his official Twitter account regarding the announcement.

The measures, announced on Thursday by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken include visa restrictions for eight Cuban officials allegedly implicated in the arrests and judicial prosecution of participants in the violent events on July 11.

The State Department justified the decision as individualized measures within the framework of Presidential Proclamation 5377, which suspends the possibility of Cuban government employees to enter the United States as non-immigrants.

These actions enhance the impact of four sanctions that were approved on July 11, and the announcement made on November 30 on visa restrictions on nine Cuban officials in relation to the alleged repression of activists on November 15, the US press release says.

However, the media agree that it is interference in Cuba’s internal affairs.

The objective of these measures is to mediate the administration of justice in the country and to try to protect the elements that, largely financed by Washington, seek to subvert Cuba’s political and social order.
