Cuban ambassador denounces double standards of United States government policy towards Cuba

Kuala Lumpur, November 4 - The Cuban ambassador to Malaysia, Ibete Fernández Hernández denounced the aggressive policy of the United States government towards the island through an article published by the national news agency Bernama based on an interview conducted.

The Cuban diplomat referred to the double standard that the United States maintains by keeping silent in the face of the attack perpetrated against the Cuban embassy in Washington last April and points to the island as a promoter of terrorism. She added that the United States government must acknowledge and publicly denounce the terrorist nature of the attack and share with Cuba all the information it has in this regard.

Among other issues addressed in the interview, the ambassador addressed the discrediting campaign against Cuban collaboration in health whose specialists have traveled to different parts of the world in the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic.

"Questioning the dignity, professionalism and altruism of more than 400,000 Cuban health collaborators, who in 56 years have served missions in 164 nations is immoral and unacceptable"

The ambassador pointed out that "the United States government, in its attempt to deepen the blockade, has orchestrated a campaign to discredit Cuban doctors since 2019 and even threatened to cut financial aid from countries and multilateral organizations if they accept Cuban medical specialists." .

The article concludes that “Cuba is committed to respecting human rights, the principles of peaceful coexistence, and respect for the sovereignty of all States. The island will not stop cooperating and expanding its solidarity despite any threat”.
