Cuba denounces Canadian media manipulation of VenezuelaHAVANA, Cuba, Mar 4 (ACN) Cuba rejected an article published by Canadian broadcaster CBC News on the alleged presence of Cuban military in the Venezuelan army, which it described as tendentious and manipulative.

In a message sent to the editor of CBC News, the Cuban ambassador in Ottawa, Josefina Vidal, assured that such a statement is a scandalous slander, Prensa Latina reported today in an office dated in Ottawa.

I demand that the CBC news present proof, which evidently it does not have, since it does not appear in the whole article," the article states.

The diplomat recalls that more than 20,000 Cubans provide services in the South American nation, 94 percent of whom are health workers and the rest from other sectors such as education.

It also accuses CBC News of repeating the thesis of U.S. President Donald Trump, who accused Cuba of maintaining a private army in Venezuela, without providing any evidence.

It is regrettable that the news media does not denounce the White House's plans for military aggression against the South American country and its strategy of destroying the Cuban Revolution, says Vidal.

In this regard, he recalls that the U.S. National Security Advisor, Jonh Bolton, organized a coup d'état in 2002 against the then Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez.

Let us hope that CBC News does not support the aggression of the United States against the peoples of our America, and then apologizes, as so many media had to do after the war against Iraq, underlines the ambassador.

As our government recently expressed, what is at stake today in Venezuela is the sovereignty and dignity of Latin America and the Caribbean, the survival of international law and the UN Charter, and whether the legitimacy of a government emanates from the will of its people or from the recognition of foreign powers, she says.
