Copenhague, Dec 28 (Prensa Latina) The Danish-Cuban Association on Monday highlighted the Caribbean nation’s solidarity with other countries during the Covid-19 pandemic, despite the tightening of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States
In a statement released on Monday, the organization denounced the Trump administration’s attacks on Cuba and the serious impact on Cuban economy due to US sanctions.
The United States tightened the blockade to the most brutal level since it took effect in the early 1960s. According to a report presented at the United Nations, that policy costs Cuba 5.5 billion dollars a year, so the island is a victim of a true economic war, the text indicated.
In this situation, it is impressive to see how Cuba and its people, with a common effort based on solidarity and socialism, are managing the crisis caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and are getting better results than its northern neighbor.
The Association also highlighted that Cuba has sent medical brigades to dozens of nations to tackle Covid-19, and expressed its support to award the Nobel Peace Prize to the Henry Reeve Medical Brigade.
Friendship and solidarity are fundamental values of the Cuban Revolution. We commit to keep on fighting alongside Cuba and against the US blockade, the text pointed out.
