Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, against the backdrop of protests in the country, called on supporters of the current government to take to the streets and resist provocations, which, according to him, are “counter-revolutionary mercenaries”. It is reported by TASS…
“We will not allow any counter-revolutionary mercenaries sold to the American empire to provoke destabilization. There will be a revolutionary response, ”the head of state said on the air of state television. He noted that “the Yankees who have always supported the blockade and served as mercenaries of the empire, today demand “humanitarian intervention” ”. According to him, these people encourage actions aimed at spreading the idea that the Cuban government is unable to control the epidemiological situation on the island.
In Cuba, in the city of San Antonio de los Banos, 24 kilometers south of Havana, a group of people gathered in one of the central parks to hold a demonstration. The President of the country arrived at the scene.
Earlier, Cuban Ambassador to China Carlos Pereira Hernandez accused the United States of “tantamount to genocide” blockade. In addition, he said that Havana is strongly opposed to the practice of politicization, selectivity and double standards in the field of human rights.
