The revolutionary government reiterates its solidarity with Constitutional Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro Moros, the Bolivarian Chavista Revolution, and the civic-military union, calling on all people and governments of the world to defend peace.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, during a press conference yesterday, called on the United Nations (UN) to back the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people and not allow, under any circumstances, interference in the internal affairs of that nation, or violations of international law.

#Cuba: It is imperative to halt the imperialist military adventure against #Venezuela

The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba condemns the escalation of pressures and actions of the US government in preparation for a military adventure under the guise of a “humanitarian intervention” in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and calls on the international community to mobilize in order to prevent its consummation.

Between February 6 and 10 of 2019, several military transport aircraft have been flying to the Rafael Miranda Airport in Puerto Rico; the San Isidro Air Base in the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean Islands that have a strategic location, most certainly without the knowledge of the governments of those nations. These flights took off from US military facilities from where Special Operation Troops and US Marine Corps units operate. These units have been used for covert operations, even against leaders of other countries.

Media and political circles, even in the US, have revealed that extremist figures of that government with a long history of actions and slanders aimed at causing or instigating wars, such as John Bolton, US National Security Advisor; and Mauricio Claver-Carone, Director of the National Security Council’s Office of Western Hemisphere Affairs, counting on the connivance of Marco Rubio, Senator of the anti-Cuban mafia of Florida, designed, directly and thoroughly organized and obtained the funds, from their posts in Washington, for the attempted coup d’ etat in Venezuela by means of the illegal self-proclamation of a president.

The international community demonstrated on Wednesday at the UN, for the umpteenth time, its rejection of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba for almost six decades.

Representatives from all over the world raised their voices in the plenary session of the UN General Assembly to support a draft resolution, presented by Havana, against this punitive policy.

Latin America and the Caribbean denounced the U.S. strategy, which they considered an obstacle to the development of Cuba.

The economic, commercial and financial blockade violates international law and the UN Charter, and constitutes a violation of Cuba’s right to interact fully with humanity, declared Venezuela’s ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada.

Once again, the UN General Assembly debated the draft resolution presented by Cuba calling for an end to the U.S. blockade. Despite U.S. attempts to sabotage the annual debate and pressure other nations to vote against Cuba – through the submission of eight ridiculous amendments to the text – this October 31 saw a wealth of nations express their support for Cuba and condemn this criminal, genocidal policy.

The 27th annual vote on the Resolution will take place tomorrow, November 1st.

Bruno Rodríguez: “We are certain that the amendments will be rejected”

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez stated today in a press conference that the United States government, in its desire to create greater tensions and increase hostility, is posing obstacles to the forthcoming vote against the blockade in the UN.

He explained that the U.S. State Department originally presented a document consisting of eight paragraphs of amendments to the draft resolution “Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba.” However, the text was hastily divided into eight separate amendments that will be submitted to the United Nations General Assembly for analysis tomorrow.

All this pursues the obvious aim of creating a pretext to tighten the blockade, and attempt to present the illusion that there is international support for the policy, Rodríguez stressed. The U.S. delegation to the UN seeks to disturb, consume time, create confusion and hinder the adoption of the resolution calling for the end of the blockade against Cuba.

The amendments presented by the United States have the objective of changing the nature of the resolution that opposes the blockade, with emphasis on the extraterritorial application of the policy, he explained. Instead, he said, the United States wants to turn it into a resolution that contains attacks against Cuba in the field of human rights, which are totally unjustified.
