Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel has called the United States government immoral, arrogant and perverse for its escalation of hostility against the people of the Caribbean nation.
“The imperial government is applying new sanctions that affect the Cuban people, while the American people are being harshly hit by the pandemic and racist repression,” the Cuban leader remarked on his personal Twitter account. With the tag #NoMoreBlocking and a photo with the phrase “Sanctions are a crime,” the president said that in Cuba, no one surrenders.
Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel participated on Thursday in the annual review of the foreign policy work during 2019 and the priorities for the island’s Foreign Ministry for 2020.
Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, Deputy Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas were also on hand at the event.
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez recalled that last year was complex, challenging, and with significant results for Cuba and its people.
