The U.S. government is continuing preparations for a military intervention against Venezuela, denounced Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez here on Tuesday.
In a press conference at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the diplomat said that as the government of the island warned in its statement of February 13, there are military transport flights to other countries from U.S. facilities where special operations forces and marine infantry are located.
According to Rodriguez, these are troops used for covert actions, which include political figures among their targets.
These movements are carried out with the absolute ignorance of the governments concerned in total disrespect for them and for international law, he pointed out.
The Foreign Minister of Cuba reminded national and foreign journalists that the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, Raul Castro, and the Cuban president, Miguel Diaz-Canel, have warned in recent months about the consequences of a possible new war adventure by Washington for the economy, society, and peace.
Rodriguez said that Cuba calls on the international community to act over the political differences in defense of peace and to avoid with collective effort, a military intervention against Venezuela.
He also ratified Cuba's solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution, the constitutional president Nicolas Maduro and the civil-military union of the people of the South American country. / PL
