Cuban FM Assures Cuba Will Defend its Revolution

Havana, Apr 19 (Prensa Latina) In remembering on Friday the 58th anniversary of the victory in Bay of Pigs, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez assured that just as in 1961, Cuba will defend its Revolution, with the certainty of victory.

‘In the face of new aggression from the United States Government, the people of Cuba -firm, heroic, honorable- will defend their Revolution with the certainty that just like 58 years ago in Bay of Pigs, imperialism will be defeated and victory will be ours,’ he wrote in Twitter.

The victory in Bay of Pigs, led by historic leader Fidel Castro, was achieved in less than 72 hours and represents the first defeat of the US in Latin America.

On Thursday, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel also recalled the anniversary and underlined the determination of the Cuban people, faithful to the historic legacy of the victory in Bay of Pigs, to face and prevail in the face of Washington’s aggressive escalation.

Last Wednesday, the administration of Donald Trump reinforced the blockade imposed for almost 60 years on the island, with the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, which includes sanctions designed to force economic suffocation as an instrument to topple the Cuban Government.

The White House also announced it will increase restrictions on travel by Americans to Cuba and limit the amount of remittances Cubans living in the United States are able to send their relatives.

The Government of Cuba repudiated such aggressiveness and called on the international community to curb the US government’s imperial ambitions.
