Cuba rejects extension of US Executive Order against Venezuela

Havana, March 6 (Prensa Latina) The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, today repudiated the extension of the Executive Order that the United States government has used since 2015 to justify its sustained aggression against Venezuela.

The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry today repudiated the extension of the White House Executive Order and assured that the people of that country will not bow to pressure from Washington.

He stressed that the United States is today hostage to its own policies of aggression.

You cannot expect anything else from a Government that normalizes and trivializes the genocide against the Palestinian people or that is indifferent to the progressive loss of civil rights of its minorities, he said.

US President Barack Obama (2009-2017) signed Executive Order 13692 that declared the South American nation an “unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy” of the northern country.

Such decision established the legal, political and administrative bases for the imposition of unilateral coercive measures against Caracas.
