Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel says that because of its failed policies against the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela, the United States is showing its outrage by imposing economic sanctions against the Caribbean island.
Lies, slander and hypocrisy are the pretext for the U.S. government to tighten the blockade. We will resist and win, Díaz-Canel wrote on his Twitter account.
"What most affects the Cuban people is the unjust, criminal and prolonged blockade; a policy that has failed and has been rejected by the international community. The empire uses lies and hypocrisy as a pretext", said the Head of State in another message, quoted by Prensa Latina news agency.
The Cuban President reiterated his alert on the danger stemming from hegemony and quoted the leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro when he said: "Today we cannot speak of a United Nations system, what really exists today is a system of domination of almost all the countries of the world by a reduced group of powers that, under the aegis of the United States, determine all matters".
