In an article published in the Pagina 12 newspaper, the analyst pointed out that Washington’s accusation against Cuba abuses the concept of extraterritoriality and intends to further damage bilateral relations, in addition to affecting the Cuban people.
The United States renewed President Donald Trump’s decision to stigmatize Cuba.
In addition, Veiga recalled that then US President Barack Obama (2009-2017) removed Cuba from that list and began to normalize relations.
Trump added 243 tough sanctions against Cuba and re-designated it as a State sponsor of terrorism on January 11, 2021, just a few days after the fascist insurrection on Capitol Hill, the article noted.
President Joe Biden continued along the same path of an aggressive foreign policy, which is intensifying, despite promises of a certain rapprochement.
Far from returning to the stage of détente, the current president is much more like Trump in terms of relations with Cuba, according to Veiga.
On the other hand, he pointed out that Cuba was the victim of numerous US attacks, including the explosion of a Cubana de Aviacion airlines in mid-flight, the invasion of Playa Giron (Bay of Pigs) and biological warfare.
The most flagrant violation of human rights is the economic, commercial and financial blockade aimed at starving the Cuban population to death, the journalist noted.
