Havana, Sep 6 (Prensa Latina) Deputy Foreign Minister Abelardo Moreno denounced today the US attempts to use the UN Security Council to attack Nicaragua and ratified Cuba’s rejection of that type of methods.
The deputy foreign minister said that, in his first official act at the UN body this month, the US government manipulated procedures and violated the UN Charter to impose an analysis on the situation in Nicaragua.
He explained in the multinational Telesur that the permanent representative of the United States in the aforementioned Council called for the adoption of measures against the Central American country and to continue its unconventional war against Venezuela in an intervention, which he described as interventionist and disrespectful.
Moreno criticized the insults that the US official also gave when referring to the president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, which, he said, represents a violation of all international practices.
He considered it an insult for the Nicaraguan people that Washington convened the Organization of American States (OAS), ‘a faithful ally of the worst causes in the region,’ to inform the Security Council about the situation in Nicaragua.
Therefore, it ratified the energetic rejection of Cuba to any action to impose a policy of change of regime, as well as to the application of the Monroe Doctrine against that Central American country.
The Cuban official clarified that the United Nations Charter establishes that the Council will be in charge of matters that threaten international peace and security, which is not the case in Nicaragua, he emphasized.
Moreno explained that the situation in that country constitutes an attempt to destabilize it through violence and with a clear projection from abroad.
He also said that it is intended to affect the tranquility of the Nicaraguan people, in clear violation of the regulations of the Proclamation of Latin America as a Zone of Peace, signed by the heads of state of the region at the Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States in Havana on 2014.
