Dec 27 (teleSUR) The president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, condemned the aggression to the Mexican embassy in Bolivia and reiterated his support for the Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador Government.

Díaz-Canel shared in his official Twitter account an article from the Cuban press that stated that the “police operation before the Mexican embassy in Bolivia ‘is out of proportion.”

Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, rejected the siege of the Mexican Embassy and called this a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
