Syria condemns escalation of US interference in Cuba

Damascus, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) The Association of Syrian Graduates in Cuban Universities issued a statement in which they strongly condemned the hostile and interfering policy of the United States in the Caribbean island.

We reject this negative and harmful approach that was intensified during the last few days in a dirty and cheap effort to instigate acts of destabilization, the Association noted.

The text added that similar interference and slanderous acts by Washington were carried out by the Empire in Syria and other Arab nations during the so-called “Arab Spring,” bringing only chaos and deaths.

The group also expressed support for President Díaz Canel’s statement on Cuban authorities’ willingness to attend to the demands of the Cuban people, to listen, dialogue and explain the numerous steps being taken to improve the situation, always in an atmosphere of tranquility.

The difficult economic situation and the shortages and difficulties faced by the population on a daily basis are due to the impact of the blockade imposed for more than six decades, the Association pointed out.

It considered that the millions used to fund the reinforcement of an economic and communication war seek to exploit the natural irritation of the population against the government.

According to the Association’s board of directors and members, in the current wars, collaborators, mercenaries and lackeys are employed, just as they have been in other countries with the aim of causing cracks and divisions in society.

We take this opportunity to condemn the blockade and affirm that if the US Government had an honest concern for the welfare of Cubans, it would have lifted this blockade and removed Cuba from the arbitrary list of States that allegedly sponsor terrorism, the statement concluded.
