Luanda, Feb 6 (Prensa Latina) Progressive governments in Latin America and the Caribbean are under siege and the fight ahead will be hard, said Cuban researcher Oscar Oramas, invited to speak here at the Venâncio de Moura Diplomatic Academy.
We continue to observe the persistent trend to destabilize legitimate governments with the active participation of the Organization of American States (OAS), he said.
In the regional sphere, the most extreme current of neoliberalism is very active and coordinates its actions to confront progressive processes,Oramas, who was the first ambassador of his country in Angola, insisted.
Cuba, he said, ‘must be given a clear and substantial support’, since it has been subjected to the economic, financial and commercial blockade of the U.S. Executive for more than half a century. U.S. imperialism resorts to coercive measures of neo-liberalism as a weapon of political and social subversion in the world, the scholar denounced.
Such punitive actions, he underlined, are nowadays a central issue in international politics, as the current war in Ukraine shows.
In his opinion, the confrontation was triggered by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) encirclement of Russia, and the West is using all kinds of means and procedures to achieve its aims, from conventional force to cyber warfare and the dissemination of false news.
As a result, he weighed up, a colossal arms race has been unleashed, in which the big American companies are making huge profits and Europe has been the loser.
The world panorama will very much depend on what happens in Ukraine and ‘I have the impression that we are approaching very defining moments’, the expert, who invited to analyze the conflict in the light of the pretensions of Washington and its allies to prevent, ‘at all costs, the emergence of the already inevitable multipolar world’, evaluated.
