Havana, June 22 (Prensa Latina) The hostility of the United States Government against Cuba with the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, which tightens the blockade, is still being condemned by world organizations.
In Rome, political and solidarity organizations with Cuba held a protest against the intensification of U.S. policy towards the Caribbean nation.
The participants expressed their support to Cuba in the face of the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton and other measures, while highlighting the bravery and determination of the Cuban people in the face of successive attacks by the White House administration.
This week Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel reiterated that Washington’s economic blockade of his country will never block the principles, convictions and patriotism of his people.
In a message on Twitter he pointed out that the financial and resource consequences of the intensification of the blockade with the more severe application of the Helms-Burton Law, after its Titles III and IV were activated, will not affect the independence and sovereignty of the country.
In Havana, on the occasion of an economic forum with about 120 businessmen, the European Union condemned the extraterritorial, unilateral and contrary to international legislation applied by the United States against Cuba.
At the same meeting, Hugo Beteta, Director of the Subregional Office in Mexico of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, pointed out that Helms-Burton, with its abusively extraterritorial character, prohibits the right to trade and investment among nations and is an attempt against multilateralism.
The most recent incident of the Trump government against Cuba is the inclusion of the country in a report on human trafficking, which was rejected by the Cuban authorities, who described it as arbitrary and unilateral.
