Cuba reiterates its solidarity with the brotherly people of Mexico.

Cuba condemned, in the strongest terms, the violent raid by the Ecuadorian police on the diplomatic headquarters of Mexico in Quito on April 5, considering it a flagrant violation of International Law, in particular the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, the right to asylum and the sovereignty of that nation.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla's statement was made at the Extraordinary Ministerial Meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), convened to examine the breach of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and in which he said that Cuba defends the force of law, not the right to force.

He also pointed out the need for Latin America and the Caribbean to continue to be a Zone of Peace, as proclaimed by the Celac, which met ten years ago in Havana, with the signature of the Heads of State and Government, for which dialogue and negotiation are the only acceptable ways to resolve differences between our nations, in accordance with the principles of International Law and in full compliance with the Charter of the United Nations.

In his speech, the Foreign Minister recalled the message sent by President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, in which he reiterated Cuba's full solidarity and support to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Secretary Alicia Bárcena, the Government of Mexico and the dear and brotherly Mexican people, in view of the unacceptable violation and outrage of their Embassy in Quito.

Rodríguez Parrilla insisted that Mexico can and will be able to count on Cuba's disposition and willingness to accompany them in the actions they undertake in the face of this serious transgression of International Law.
