The Director-General of Cuba-U.S. relations at the Cuban Foreign Ministry said Washington has increased its hostile rhetoric against Cuba in recent months.
Published 15 October 2018 (TeleSUR English) | On Sunday, Cuba denounced the United States government for resorting to “fraudulent accusations” and “defamatory campaigns” against the island including generating a climate of “greater tension” bilaterally.
Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, the director-general for the department of Cuba-U.S. relations of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, said that Washington has increased its hostile rhetoric against Cuba in recent months.
He also added that the U.S. government intends to resume the “failed campaign against Cuba in the area of human rights,” in a statement published on the official website Cubaminrex.
He lamented that “far from engaging in dialogue on the basis of respect, as Cuba has been willing to do for cooperation purposes and as it does with other countries, Washington resorts to fraudulent accusations and defamatory campaigns.”
The director-general accused the administration of Donald Trump of pushing for negative bilateral relations by constant “irresponsible and provocative statements and falsehoods” about Cuba.
According to the official, the U.S. dedicated millions of resources in attempts to undermine the Cuban constitutional order, “… interfere in internal affairs and finance individuals who act as agents of a foreign power.”
This interference is illegal in Cuba, as it is illegal in the U.S. and any other country according to Fernandez de Cossio.
