Cuba rejects slanderous anti-Cuban mention of the so-called Lima GroupHAVANA, Cuba, Apr 17 (ACN) In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs rejected a slanderous mention against Cuba of the so-called Lima Group, a multilateral body of 14 countries that promote policies and actions against the Bolivarian government of Venezuela, and its legitimate president Nicolas Maduro.

Below is the full text of the communiqué.
On April 15, the so-called Lima Group, meeting in Santiago, Chile, adopted an interfering statement on Venezuela that singles out Cuba among a group of countries whose support for the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela allegedly has a negative impact on our region.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba rejects this assertion, which echoes the slanderous statements of the U.S. Secretary of State on his recent tour of South America, and which, with dignity, did not have the support of the Caribbean countries present.
The Latin American and Caribbean countries of this Group have received Cuban aid workers in various spheres and are perfectly aware of the altruistic and supportive character that guides Cuban cooperation.
The nearly 20,000 Cuban collaborators in Venezuela have broad social recognition for their commitment, consecration and noble humanitarian work. Cuba would never renounce its principles or offer cooperation in order to contribute to the well-being of those peoples who needed it.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterates Cuba's firm commitment to the postulates of the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace.
