Havana, Apr 13 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez charged on Wednesday that the United States uses human rights as a utilitarian instrument against countries that do not subordinate to its interests.
On his Twitter account, the foreign minister condemned that at the same time, the US “rewards and finances governments with a lousy record” in that matter.
On Tuesday, the State Department released its latest annual report on human rights in the world, in which it avoids exposing its internal problems and points to what is happening in other countries.
Rodriguez said that the US economic, commercial and financial blockade is the main violation of Cubans’ human rights.
He noted that this document manipulates the human rights issue to subvert Cuba’s constitutional order.
Meanwhile, the deputy director of the United States Department at the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Johana Tablada, said that the implementation of a deceitful policy, which wastes millions in a large-scale smear campaign against Cuba, its population, healthcare system and legitimate sources of income discredits the US Government.
