Geneva, Mar 1 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez,in Switzerland, expressed his gratitude for the solidarity with the island and the actions against the U.S. blockade, during his ongoing activities in this European country.

Rodriguez described the exchange as emotional and shared with the participants aspects of the current reality of the island.
The day before, the Foreign Minister intervened in the high-level segment of the Human Rights Council, a forum in which he rejected Washington’s aggressions, such as the blockade itself, the inclusion of Cuba in the unilateral list of countries sponsoring terrorism and the destabilization campaigns.
He also called for a new international order based on cooperation and for an end to the politicization of the issue of human rights and its use to attack governments that do not accept to be submitted to the designs of ‘the masters of finance, markets and weapons’.
