Ambassador discusses Cuba’s reality with French college students

Paris, Feb 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Ambassador to France Otto Vaillant on Tuesday met with French university students and professors to debate on Cuba´s reality issues, bilateral relations as well as the impact of the hostile U.S. blockade.

At the School of Law at the Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, the Cuban diplomat made a presentation and exchanged standpoints with a great number of college students.

Vaillant explained hostility imposed by successive U.S. administrations since the triumph of the Revolution on January 1, 1959, and damages caused by the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba.

In this regard, Vaillant stated that regardless of who is ruling at the White House, the reality is that any US president has not recognized the right of the Cuban people to independence and self-determination.

The Cuban ambassador praised Cubans´ resistance ahead of Washington’s aggressiveness, which was tightened even amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

While the world was fighting off the pandemic, Cuba was also fighting off the hostile blockade, and in spite of it, Cuba created its homegrown Covid-19 vaccines to protect its population, Vaillant stated.

As for France-Cuba relations, Vaillant said that both nations have shown 120 years of nonstop bilateral relations, although both suffer the effects of the U.S. blockade extraterritoriality.
