Cuba condemned attempted coup d’état in Bolivia

Havana, Jul 2 (Prensa Latina) The Bolivian ambassador to Cuba, Yeshika Crespo, asserted today that the attempted coup d'état in Bolivia, on June 26, sought to rearrange geopolitics in Latin America to favor the interests of imperialism.

During a political-cultural act against the coup attempt in this South American nation, held at the Casa del Alba in this capital, the diplomat affirmed that the Bolivian people will not allow their Homeland to be stripped of its natural resources, that democracy be broken again, nor the return of the coup-plotting right wing to power.

Crespo indicated that the operation failed due to the decisive action of the President of Bolivia, Luis Alberto Arce, who confronted the coup plotters face to face and ordered the demobilization of the Armed Forces, to preserve the lives of the Bolivians and this had not been calculated.

She also acknowledged the immediate response of the masses, who spontaneously mobilized towards the Plaza Murillo, where the Casa Grande del Pueblo is located, to defend the government and resist the coup attempt.

The ambassador thanked the international community for its immediate rejection of the attempted coup d’état and its support for her government, democratically elected by the people.

For her part, the coordinator of the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity for the Peoples and journalist, Graciela Ramírez, urged the peoples and governments of the region to be cohesive and to develop a strategy for the future.

‘We want unity, dignity and be allowed to live in peace’, she indicated and recalled the coup d’état perpetrated in the South American nation against Evo Morales, in 2019 and the constant attempts to discredit and delegitimize Latin American leftist governments such as those of Cuba and Venezuela.
