On Twitter, the minister recalled that in the US, 1009 people were killed by police bullets in 2021.
However, in the US State Department’s annual report on human rights in the world, recently published, Washington shows alleged concern about other countries, but ignores its own nation’s internal problems.
Cuban authorities condemned Washington’s use of the human rights issue as an utilitarian instrument against countries that do not subordinate to its interests, while it rewards governments with a dismal record on this matter.
On Wednesday, Deputy Foreign Minister Anayansi Rodriguez demanded that the US stop attacking the planet’s situation with “accusations and lies” and examine how universal guarantees are violated in its own territory.
The US “is the main violator of human rights of its people and other nations. It violates them systematically, massively and flagrantly,” the official wrote in a tweet.
In this regard, she stressed that the wars unleashed by the White House abroad, the subversive actions that it promotes and funds in different latitudes, and the recurrent use of sanctions and unilateral coercive measures “result in flagrant violations of the human rights of those peoples.”
