Cuban Foreign Minister sees US response to Covid-19 as opportunistic

Havana, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) The Minister of Foreign Relations of Cuba, Bruno Rodriguez, called the response by the United States to Covid-19 ‘politically calculated’ and ‘opportunistic’.

Rodriguez Tweeted saying that ‘an objective observation of the sequence of pronunciations and actions by the government of the United States lets see that the answer to Covid-19 has been politically calculated and opportunistic.’

Rodriguez said that while the US politicians have election in mind, the country is turning into an epicenter of the pandemic and threatens millions.

The Foreign Minister denounced the discrediting campaign by the US Department of State and the US embassy in Havana against Cuba’s medical cooperation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba released a protest on March 27th for what it considered an action ‘offensive to Cuba and the rest of the world’, in times when a pandemic threatens us all and solidarity is needed.

The number of confirmed cases in the United States increases by the day, and had reached over 100 thousands, with some 1,600 dead, as per data provided by WHO.

The response by the US government has been, however, called slow and disorganized by international media.
