Cuban President condemns US terrorism and manipulation

DC Cuba

Havana, June 1 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Monday condemned terrorism and political manipulation by the United States.

Under the hashtags #SomosCuba and #SomosContinuidad, Diaz-Canel also rejected on Twitter ‘the US lie and falsehood.’

Earlier, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez affirmed his country has an absolute and categorical commitment to vigorous action on terrorism.

There are many reasons to doubt the United States can issue such a categorical statement about its stance to fight terrorism, Rodriguez tweeted.

In a statement published on Monday, the Cuban Foreign Ministry (MINREX) expressed that as a country victim of terrorism, Cuba deplores all political manipulation and opportunism when dealing with such a sensitive issue.

In this regard, MINREX strongly rejected its inclusion on the list of nations that ‘do not cooperate’ to anti-terrorist efforts of the United States due to the presence of members of the National Liberation Army (ELN) in Cuba, while he restated Cuban support for Colombian peace.
