“We demand that the Joe Biden administration carry out the pertinent investigations and punish those materially and intellectually responsible for this repudiated terrorist act on Sunday night,” the Cubans in Mexico said.
They recalled that in April 2020, Cuba’s diplomatic mission was attacked by an individual who fired with an assault rifle, thus violating the provisions of the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations in which the host country must guarantee the security of embassies and their personnel.
The US Government should not continue to allow terrorist acts to be committed on its territory against Cuba, as it cynically includes the Caribbean island in the spurious list of countries that sponsor terrorism.
This way, Washington reinforces the cruel and genocidal economic, commercial and financial blockade that has been violating the human rights of all our people for more than six decades, they added.
The Cuban residents in Mexico rejected the hate speech promoted by the Miami-based extreme right wing that encourages these kinds of actions, since it is a minority expression of the Cuban emigration.
They affirmed that the vast majority of Cubans living abroad advocate a respectful and constructive relationship with our homeland, which we will defend and support in its sovereign decision to continue along the path taken since January 1959.
