Havana, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel assured that Cuba honors this Wednesday more than 3,400 people who died as a result of US aggressions, on the Day of the Victims of Terrorism.
On his official Twitter account, the president wrote: ‘We bear that pain when they insist on tarnishing history, including our country in the infamous list of state sponsors of terrorism,’ drawn up by Washington.
In another message, the head of State pointed out that the island will never forget ‘the abominable Crime of Barbados’, when a Cubana de Aviacion plane with 73 people on board exploded in mid-air in 1976 following an explosive attack.
The attack was orchestrated by notorious terrorists Luis Posada Carriles (1928-2018) and Orlando Bosch (1926-2011), at the service of the Central Intelligence Agency, who died peacefully under the protection of the Republican and Democratic administrations of the northern nation, Diaz-Canel remarked.
According to the Demand of the Cuban people to the US Government for human damages, submitted in Havana on May 31, 1999, terrorism has been a permanent instrument by the White House foreign policy against the Caribbean country.
The commemoration of the Day of the Victims of State Terrorism establishes that every October 6, the Cuban flag is flown at half-mast, either in civil and military institutions, or in Cuban diplomatic and consular missions abroad.
