The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, during a press conference yesterday, called on the United Nations (UN) to back the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people and not allow, under any circumstances, interference in the internal affairs of that nation, or violations of international law.
Unilateral, illegal measures, such as those being taken against the sister Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, along with an aggressive communications and political campaign, are generally the prelude to larger-scale actions by the U.S. government, Rodríguez noted.
Cuba calls for a mobilization for peace, against imperialist intervention in Latin America, against war, setting aside political or ideological differences. "In these circumstances you can only be in favor of peace and against war," the minister said. / Granma
