HAVANA, Cuba, Sep 4 (ACN) Cuban FM Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla denounced Friday on Twitter the U.S. government's persecution against Cuba's financial transactions, banking and credit operations, and its continued hostility despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
That persecution, on a global scale, is contrary to the United Nations Charter and international law, Rodriguez Parrilla asserted.
The extraterritoriality of the blockade of the United States against our country also damages the sovereignty of other states, the minister added.
Cuban authorities have denounced the opportunism and the worsening of the harassment in the midst of the pandemic. On the other hand, the US State Department has insisted on hostile statements, in spite of the UN's call for the halting of conflicts of all kinds and for international collaboration in the face of the pandemic.
