President: US Embassy Meeting with, Supporting Dissidents in Cuba
Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said the US embassy in Havana insists on continuing its subversive approach to undermine the system in Cuba.
US diplomats are meeting with opponents of the Cuban revolution in the US embassy in Havana, and they are providing them with technical and financial support, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said Tuesday.
"The US embassy in Cuba is insisting on maintaining its sad and embarrassing role in subverting the internal order in our country," President Diaz-Canel said in a tweet.
Diaz-Canel asserted that Havana would not stand idle against the US behavior: "We are strongly determined to confront them and condemn their actions."
The role Washington plays in Havana is provocative, said Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, accusing the US embassy in Cuba of "playing a growing role in political subversion efforts."
The foreign minister stressed that Havana is determined to confront the subversive and aggressive efforts the embassy is exerting.
According to Cuban authorities, US embassy officials have been holding meetings with prominent dissident figures in Cuba in the US embassy in Havana.
As per Havana, the diplomats have directed the dissidents, incited them, and provided them with logistical and financial support to foment political unrest in Cuba.
At the conclusion of Sunday's session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, President Diaz-Canel accused the US embassy of issuing information aimed at defaming Cuba on human rights issues.
He also condemned the US efforts manifested by Washington "handpicking" and supporting several young leaders and preparing them abroad to use them in "promoting their ideals which oppose society and support capitalism and neoliberalism."
"These actions constitute an unconventional war on Cuba accompanied by sanctions imposed by the White House, smearing Cuba, and stifle the country economically," the Cuban president stressed.
"There are enough revolutionaries to confront any kind of demonstrations that aim to subvert the revolution," Miguel Diaz-Canel proclaimed.
He concluded by saying, "Let the imperialists know that they will have to have to fight with a non-deluded people who are brave and heroic enough to fight. They are not afraid of threats."
