Cuba denounces US threat to regional peace

Havana, Oct 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez denounced today what he described as aggressiveness and a threat from the United States to the peace and security of the region.

In his official Twitter account, the Foreign Minister made reference to the statements of the White House Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, at the virtual summit of the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS).

In this regard, Rodríguez assured that Pompeo is lying, and that ‘he uses the discredited OAS podium to repeat his Monroist speech.’

Similarly, the head of Cuban diplomacy reiterated that lying is a custom of Washington’s foreign policy.

Recently, also on Twitter, the island’s foreign minister pointed out that the United States, ‘by imposing a mandate on the discredited Ministry of Colonies (OAS), reaffirms its projection of dominance over Latin America and its aggressiveness against the peoples who do not follow imperialist orders.’

According to press reports, the OAS uses its virtual meeting, which began the day before and is scheduled to end today, to analyze the situation in Venezuela and Nicaragua, whose governments were legitimately elected by the majority of their citizens and are opposed to the policies of the northern power.

Cuba has not been a member of the OAS since it was expelled in 1962, in the context of the Cold War, and it never returned to the organization as a structure designed for the dominance of the United States over Latin America.
