Díaz-Canel recalled siege of Cuban embassy in Venezuela in 2002

Havana, Apr 12 (Prensa Latina) The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, recalled today the siege of the island's embassy in Venezuela, by sectors of the extreme right, as part of the coup against Hugo Chávez in 2002.

The head of state shared a message from his Venezuelan counterpart, Nicolás Maduro, on his Twitter account, who considered this event went down in the continent’s history as the most barbaric expression of fascist intolerance.

Maduro stressed that the stateless sectors will never destroy the brotherhood that exists between Cuba and Venezuela.

Díaz-Canel spoke in the same way on the social network, assuring that courage, dignity and love between both peoples continue to win battles.

The action against the island’s diplomatic headquarters in Venezuela occurred on April 12, 2002 during the events associated with the coup against then-President Hugo Chávez (1954-2013).

Violent groups of the extreme right gathered in front of the facilities of the Cuban representation, destroyed vehicles and cut essential electricity and water services, in addition to threatening the personnel gathered inside the building.

Chávez’s return to power put an end to these actions, after his kidnapping by disloyal soldiers who acted in complicity with the business sector, opposition unions, the Catholic Church and the private media.
