Iran censures US interference in Cuba internal affairs

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh on Tuesday condemned interference of the United States and certain Western countries in the recent protests in Cuba, calling for an immediate lifting of the US sanctions against the Central American country.

Releasing a statement, Khatibzadeh said that the US and some Western countries' interference in the recent protests in Cuba was against international law, Mehr News Agency reported.

Noting that Cuba has faced “widespread US sanctions for more than six decades," the spokesman added that the sanctions have undermined Cuba’s economy and livelihoods of its people, particularly amid the Covide-19 pandemic.

Khatibzadeh blamed the United States for the Cuban problems and said that Washington is in no position to interfere in Cuba's internal affairs by expressing support to the protesters in the country in violation of international relations.

The spokesman expressed Iran's solidarity with the people and government of Cuba and called for an immediate end to US unilateral sanctions against the country.

Latin America’s leaders, political figures, and social organizations have joined a chorus of support for the Cuban government and people in response to the latest interference and destabilizing attempts by the United States.

Protest rallies erupted against Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel’s government over the weekend. The unrest comes at a time when Cuba is going through its worst economic crisis in 30 years, with chronic shortages of electricity and food exacerbated by hefty US sanctions, Press TV reported.
