Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel said today that his country is firm in the face of the hostility and interference of the United States, which resorts to pressures and slander to achieve its purposes.

In his Twitter account, the president pointed out that the empire persists in its aggressions against the Caribbean nation and shamelessly relies on lies and brutal pressures on the governments of other states.

‘Cuba is firm,’ he emphasized and added the hashtag #ACubaPonleCorazón.

The day before, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez blamed the U.S. State Department for the drafting of a ‘joint statement’ condemning Havana, for the imposition of which they are trying to coerce the members of the Organization of American States (OAS).

Rodriguez summoned the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, to recognize or deny the pressures he exerts on third countries for that purpose, ‘forcing them to join this declaration or issue a similar one’.

The document calls for respect and freedom for the people of the island, while omitting the vandalism reported during the riots of July 11.

Nor does it mention the campaign generated in social networks to promote chaos in Cuba, an operation that the national authorities described as media terrorism promoted from the United States with the involvement of the Government of Florida.

The head of Latin America and the Caribbean of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Eugenio Martínez, blamed the North American country as a fundamental actor in the fabrication of the conditions, instigation and financing of that day’s actions.

He added that Washington works in the dark and applies sanctions to add countries to its anti-Cuban crusade, for which it resorts to pressures; however, contrary to its wishes, 19 Latin American and Caribbean nations in five days demanded the end of the blockade against the Antillean island.
