Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel asserted on Saturday that the US Government has failed in its policy against Venezuela and attacks Cuba by further imposing economic sanctions that hurt the people.
'New US sanctions against Cuba. Lies, slander and hypocrisy used as pretext by the US Government to harden the blockade. Due to its failure in Venezuela it lashes out Cuba. We will resist and overcome,' Díaz-Canel wrote in his Twitter account.
'What most affects the Cuban people is the unfair, criminal and prolonged blockade; policy that has failed and is rejected by the international community. The empire uses lies and hypocrisy as a pretext,' added the Head of State in another tweet.
Díaz-Canel reiterated on Twitter his alert about the danger of hegemony and quoted the leader of the Cuban revolution Fidel Castro: '... today you cannot talk about a United Nations system; ... what really exists today is a system of domination of almost every country in the world by a small group of powers that, under the aegis of the United States, determine all matters ...'
