France denounces US silence in attack on Cuban embassy

Paris, May 7 (Prensa Latina) French professor Paul Estrade on Thursday described the action by the US government one week after the firearm attack on the Cuban Embassy in Washington D.C. as complicit silence.

In statements to Prensa Latina, the historian and emeritus professor at the University of Paris VIII questioned that by now the president of the country where the attack occurred (Donald Trump) did not regret the events and pointed out that the justice is investigating them.

Around 30 shots were fired early April 30 on the Cuban Embassy in Washington, where the authorities arrested on the scene a Cuban-origin citizen residing in Texas, named Alexander Alazo.

Estrade insisted on the doubts left by the absence of an official condemnation to an action with a clear intention to kill, which fortunately no victims were reported, but there were damages to the building as a result of the shooting.

According to Estrade, who is also a doctor of Letters and Human Sciences, the continuation of the blockade imposed on Cuba for 60 years and the Washington aggressive policy at times when the coronavirus pandemic affects humanity, are also repugnant.
