Havana, Oct 7 (RHC) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez denounced Thursday that the Latin American tour by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken seeks to defend his country's hostile policy toward the island.

The Cuban Foreign Minister said on Twitter that Blinken could have "respected the truth and did not do so", instead he tried to justify the abuses against Cuba, in the face of the almost unanimous call against the U.S. blockade and the unjust designation in the unilateral list of state sponsors of terrorism, drawn up by Washington.

The head of U.S. diplomacy arrived today in Chile after a visit to Colombia, where he met with President Gustavo Petro described as unjust the U.S. decision to keep Cuba on the list of countries that allegedly support terrorism when the island has been a guarantor of the peace agreements.

Blinken will conclude his tour in Peru, where he plans to meet with President Pedro Castillo and participate in the general assembly of the Organization of American States.

Cuba will present the resolution on the need to put an end to the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the United States by the United Nations General Assembly on November 2 and 3.

The draft will be presented for the thirtieth time, demanding the cessation of that policy which has affected the island for more than 60 years.

According to data provided by Cuban authorities, only in the first 14 months of Joe Biden's administration, the blockade caused damages to the island amounting to six thousand 364 million dollars, to subvert the constitutional order in Cuba. (Source: PL)
