During his morning press conference at the National Palace, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador once again criticized the “inhumane blockade” imposed by the United States on Cuba. The president stressed that, despite the political differences between the two countries, Cuba has maintained an independent policy for many years and has been the victim of a blockade that he considers “inhumane, infamous, and in violation of international law.” López Obrador also criticized the US Agency for International Development’s financing of opposition organizations in Mexico. The Mexican president called for a review of the US interference policy in Latin America, which he considers offensive and arrogant.
Meanwhile, the Special Rapporteur of the UN Human Rights Council, Alena Douhan, arrived in Cuba to participate in an event at the University of Havana to discuss the impact of international sanctions against Cuba. Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez pointed out that Douhan’s participation will make it possible to show the impact of the blockade as a massive, flagrant, and systematic violation of the human rights of Cubans. López Obrador has also spoken out against the blockade against Cuba on several occasions and has called for a peaceful resolution of the conflict between the United States and Cuba, reiterating that the region must be free of conflicts and respect the self-determination of each country.
