Cuba Responds to Trump by Defending Peace, ‘Yes’ Vote, Diaz-Canel Says

Havana, February 20 (Prensa Latina) Cuba will respond to Donald Trump’s threatening and interfering speech with a mobilization for peace and ”Yes” vote to support the new Cuban Constitution, President Miguel Diaz-Canel warned on Wednesday.

The president described on Twitter the statements carried out on Tuesday by the White House president in Florida as arrogant, cynical, immoral, threatening, offensive, interventionist, hypocrites, warmongers and dirty, and reiterated his aggression against Venezuela and Cuba.

‘Our response: mobilization for peace and against the imperial intervention in Latin America and a successful victory when we will vote Yes,’ he wrote barely with only four days till Cuba holds a referendum in which more than eight million Cubans are convened to vote on the Constitution approved in December by the National People’s Power Assembly.

Trump, in his speech at the International University of Florida on intervention, insisted on threats against Venezuela under the argument of a supposed humanitarian crisis in that country and guaranteed his alleged end of socialism in the hemisphere.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez rejected on Tuesday at a press briefing Washington’s interventionist stance, urged a global mobilization for peace and ratified that Cuba’s future is decided by its people.
