Statement by Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba at the Ministerial Meeting of the Group of 77 plus China during the seventy fifth session of the United Nations General Assembly. November 12, 2020.

Mr. President;

We would like to express our recognition for the work carried out by the Cooperative Republic of Guyana as President of the Group of 77 plus China and congratulate the Republic of Guinea for its election as the next President of the Group, while reassuring Cuba’s support to its work.

Measures imposed by US Government against FINCIMEX harm the Cuban people.

The inclusion of Fincimex in the list of restricted entities of the US State Department in June last, as well as the Treasury Department’s modifications to the regulations for the control of Cuban assets announced on Friday, October 23, will prevent remittances to Cuba through US companies with general licenses, which will directly harm the Cuban people and their relatives in the US.  

Doing so in the middle of a pandemic corroborates the US government’s cynicism, opportunism and contempt for the Cuban people.
