The diplomat described as a lie from Washington’s government a report released today by the State Department that once again manipulates this issue to subvert the constitutional order of the Caribbean nation.
Cuba’s social justice and international solidarity project is a benchmark in the protection and promotion of human rights, the foreign minister said on Twitter.
In his message, he added that the United States government is lying to justify the criminal blockade measures that violate the rights of the Cuban people.
The deputy director of the United States of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Johana Tablada, said the disinformation campaign that Washington leads and finances does not respond to the real human rights situation on the island.
She denounced that the United States and other countries that receive preferential treatment from it repress their population.
The diplomat described as a discredit to the US government a deceptive policy that wastes millions in a large-scale disinformation campaign against Cuba, its population, health system and legitimate sources of income.
During the Caribbean island’s confrontation with the Covid-19 pandemic, the Donald Trump government intensified the blockade with more than 200 coercive measures, as part of a policy that has not been revoked by the current president in the White House, Joe Biden.
From the financial fence to prevent access to medical supplies and equipment, they manifested themselves at this stage, despite which the island developed five of its own immunogens to combat Covid-19 and managed to control the pandemic and cooperate with more than one thirty nations.
