FotosPL: Ileana Piñeiro Paris, Sep 15 (Prensa Latina) The US government destroys multilateralism with its aggressive policies without worrying about the consequences of its behavior, Cuban lawmaker and intellectual Abel Prieto denounced on Sunday at the Fête de l’Humanité.
During an interview with Prensa Latina, the head of the Cuban delegation to the 84th edition of the festival rejected the irresponsible position of the US at a time when the world needs less selfish approaches to the problems it faces.
‘We see that this administration (that of President Donald Trump) liquidates the significance of the United Nations and the efforts after the tragedy of World War II to build a planet in peace, ignoring basic principles such as non-interference in the internal affairs of countries, the peaceful solution of differences and others,’ Prieto said.
According to the Cuban presidential adviser, the international community aspires precisely to the opposite of what Washington does with its imperialist conduct. ‘The United States happily violates multilateralism, without the slightest sense of responsibility,’ stated the former culture minister, who has seen an intense agenda at the Fête de l’Humanité, which includes meetings with solidarity with Cuba associations, participation in forums and a lecture on the work of the Cuban Revolution.
Regarding Cuba, Prieto warned that the White House is intensifying its hostility day after day, with the blockade as its spearhead.
‘That is why festivals such as that of l’Humanité are so important, because they allow us to present the truth of the island, so misrepresented, manipulated and slandered by the media that accompanies the Yankee aggression,’ he stressed.
For the intellectual and director of the Jose Marti Program Office, these are also spaces where solidarity and support for the Cuban Revolution and its people are confirmed.
