The caravans staged in the United States advocate for the end of restrictions on Cuba and call for normal relations between the two countries, said a Foreign Ministry official.
On his Twitter account, the director general of the United States Issues Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, pointed out how Cuban-Americans, to end the limitations of seeing or helping their relatives, have expanded throughout the northern country, Canada, Latin America, Africa and Europe.
Official reports today consider that the banking and financial system of Cuba is under strong pressure from the United States, with losses that exceed 284.3 million dollars.
A tweet from the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment (Mincex) of this island reflects such a problem that occurs amid outbreaks of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This Sunday, the second day of the World Caravan against the blockade of Cuba, parades of cars and various activities in repudiation of the genocidal policy took place in more than 50 countries, surpassing the expectations of this historic day.
On March 19, 1998, Prensa Latina reported an unusual event from Geneva: Cuba, the country that the United States had been describing since 1982 as a sponsor of terrorism, was acknowledged as a victim of this type of actions.
A report presented at the 54th session of the United Nations Human Rights Commission stated that the attacks on tourist facilities in Havana in 1997 were perpetrated by people funded from the United States.
Vandalism, violence, crime and terrorism, that is the supposed US aid to Cuban people, President Miguel Díaz-Canel emphasized today.

Medea, first I would like to talk to you about your recent article in Jacobin We Should Applaud the Cuban Health System — and Learn From It. Could you please explain why you wrote it.
We are in the middle of a pandemic where the United States has the worst example of how to deal with this. It’s spreading. We don’t have a public healthcare system that’s capable of dealing with this in a unified fashion. And yet 90 miles from Florida is a tiny island that has been able to deal with the pandemic, cut it way down.
The Coordination of Cubans Residing in France has repudiated the intention of three U.S. senators to affect the island’s medical cooperation with other countries, a position it called “unseemly and political.”
In a statement signed by several organizations, the coordinator denounced the objective of Republicans Rick Scott (Florida), Marco Rubio (Florida) and Ted Cruz (Texas) to impose their cruel designs on the entire American continent and the rest of the world for electoral purposes, reports Prensa Latina news agency.

The Interreligious Platform of Cuba has released a statement repudiating the most recent hostile actions of the United States against our country as well as Washington’s blockade of the island.
The religious movement, which includes the seven religions established across the country, expressed its indignation of the “unjust” inclusion of Cuba on the list of countries that “do not cooperate with anti-terrorist efforts” shortly after the attack on its embassy in Washington, DC.
While Cuban medical collaboration is extended around the world to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic, the insane blockade imposed by the United States on our country, has just denied our public health system access to two regular suppliers of ventilators, key to the care of the most serious cases of the disease.
In another twist of this genocidal, inhumane policy, the manufacturers IMTMedical AG and Acutronic, announced the end of commercial relations with Cuba, after the companies were acquired by the U.S. firm Vyaire Medical Inc.
Cuban health officials on Friday denied a statement made by Washington diplomats, who said the United States sold medicines to the island last year, and once again rejected sanctions in the context of the new coronavirus pandemic.
“The blockade has a great impact on the daily life of the population,” said Dr. Lázaro Silva, vice president of Medicuba, the state-owned company that imports health supplies, during an interview with The Associated Press.
