Information note from the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs

 

Havana, Mar 26 (ACN) Today, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has presented a Diplomatic Note of protest to the United States Government in response to recent particularly offensive statements by the State Department, resulting in a continued and exacerbated campaign of discredit and lies against the international medical cooperation offered by Cuba.

The United States Government’s smear campaign is immoral in all circumstances. It is particularly offensive to Cuba and the rest of the world, in times of a pandemic that threatens us all, and when we should all be striving to promote solidarity and help those who need it.

From the United Nations, and with one voice, the international community calls for unity and cooperation. Claim the end of wars and conflicts. It also calls for the cessation and suspension of unjust blockades and unilateral coercive measures. Get rid of meanness and hostility.

Health is a human right. That is what Cuba understands and does.

As the Commander in Chief, Fidel Castro said; “Cuba would never carry out preventive or surprise attacks against any dark corner of the world, instead our country was able – and continues to be – to send the doctors that are needed to the darkest corners of the world. Doctors and not bombs.”

Information released by Juan Antonio Fernández Palacios, deputy director of the General Directorate of Press, Communication and Image of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
