Cuban President: The United States Failed to Destroy Cuba
Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel stressed that “a failed state is one that, in order to appease and blackmail a minority, is capable of multiplying the harm done to 11 million people”.
Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said Friday that the United States "has failed in its efforts to destroy Cuba, “adding that “If President Joseph Biden had sincere humanitarian concern for the Cuban people, he could eliminate the 243 measures implemented by President Donald Trump, including the more than 50 cruelly imposed during the pandemic, as a first step towards ending the blockade."
“A failed state is one that, to appease and blackmail a minority, is capable of multiplying the harm done to 11 million people while ignoring the wishes of the majority of Cubans, Americans, and the international community," Diaz-Canel tweeted.
According to Canel, “the United States was unable to save many of the 600,000 people who died as a result of the Corona pandemic due to the ineffectiveness of its administration, and it has a shameful record of wars, violence, brutal repression, racism, and human rights violations”.
On Thursday, the Cuban President called on Cubans “to not act with hate”, denouncing the protests as part of a well-funded US-sponsored effort to create “chaos” in Cuba.
The US has placed a rigorous embargo on Cuba since 1962, which the Cuban government considers as the primary source of the island's economic troubles.
