Cuba denounces US embassy actions in Havana

Havana, Nov 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez denounced this Tuesday that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calls on the US Embassy in Havana to “intervene in the internal affairs of a sovereign country that will not allow it.”

On Twitter, the head of Foreign Affairs described the actions of the US diplomatic mission in Cuba, endorsed by Pompeo, as illegal.

These activities seek to undermine the Cuban constitutional order, violate the Vienna Convention, the agreement to restore relations and Cuban and US laws, Rodriguez added on the social network.

He argued that Pompeo applauds coups and ignores assassinations, incidents of barbarism, repression and human rights violations by his allies.

Cuban authorities recently accused Washington of promoting a campaign of slander surrounding the arrest of counter-revolutionary Jose Daniel Ferrer, as part of the growing policy of hostility towards Cuba.

Specifically, the Cuban daily Granma published a report in which it points to the US Embassy here as “‘the fundamental vehicle of attention, orientation and financing of Ferrer’s behavior, in clear interference with the internal affairs of Cuba.”

The chargé d’affaires of that diplomatic mission, Mara Tekach, personally leads the open instigation to violence, to the disturbance of public order and to contempt of law enforcement by this citizen, the report specified.

It also denounces that the US embassy in Cuba, and particularly Tekach, concentrated in recent months on the failed purpose of recruiting mercenaries, promoting division and confusion among the Cuban population.
