In statements to Prensa Latina, Pineda remarked that the Caribbean island has every right to decide its destiny, to defend its independence and sovereignty and to receive international backing at a difficult time for its economy.
It has suffered a kind of cruelty from a thousand things, such as the accidental explosion at the Saratoga hotel in Havana, the fierce fire in Matanzas super tankers terminal and now hurricane (Ian).
And as a US-blockade country it does not have the conditions to prepare itself for any unexpected eventuality’, he commented.
Pineda who is also secretary of International Relations of the Communist Party of Spain (PCE) pointed out that nowadays a country like Cuba, which practices solidarity by sending doctors, nurses and teachers to any part of the world, needs a more concrete support.
That is why we have to perfect the lines of the solidarity campaigns to raise funds and support the Cubans, at the same time that we will continue in the permanent denunciation against the blockade, Pineda assured.
