HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 7 (ACN) Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, Cuba's Minister of Foreign Affairs on his Twitter account this Wednesday called the U.S. Executive Order against Venezuela illegitimate.
Executive Order against Venezuela is an illegitimate action, in violation of International Law. The U.S., faced with the evident failure of its attempt to "change the regime," attempts through economic harassment to break the resistance of the Bolivarian and Chavista people. It won't work, the Chancellor says.
He adds in another message that the irrational escalation of the U.S. against Venezuela and Cuba is based on false accusations, used as pretexts to try to justify their Monroe doctrine´s interests. The lie is the fundamental resource of U.S. foreign policy and Bolton its main exponent.
He then points out that it is worrying that expressions of racism, violence and xenophobia in the U.S. attack citizens of Latin American peoples, as a result of the outrageous hate speech and rejection of the current U.S. government.
Relations between Cuba and the United States have experienced a marked deterioration since the assumption of power by President Donald Trump, who among other measures has decreed the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, the closing of the Consulate in Havana and the prohibition for cruise ships to dock in Cuban ports and for U.S. citizens to visit Cuba in groups.
