In another tweet, the minister considered it regrettable that the US government maintains the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba, while the infectious disease COVID-19, caused by the new SARS CoV-2 coronavirus, threatens humanity.

The United States makes it difficult to fight the epidemic by attacking countries that practice solidarity and international cooperation, when it should end the siege it has imposed on this Caribbean country almost 60 years ago, he said.

“Regrettable that while # COVID19 threatens humanity, the government of #USA, instead of ending the illegal system of unilateral coercive measures such as the blockade vs #Cuba, makes it difficult to combat the epidemic, attacking countries that practice the intl solidarity and cooperation, “he said.
