South Africa’s IOL Denounces US Aggressions against Cuba

Pretoria, Jun 24 – A long article detailing the new US measures against Cuba was published on Sunday on Independent Online (IOL), which called to reject these actions by the Donald Trump government.

Signed by Cuban Ambassador to South Africa Rodolfo Benitez, the article calls on all members of the international community, solidarity movements and friends of Cuba to reject the irrational escalation by the Donald Trump administration against the Caribbean island.

The diplomat refers to the increase in aggressions against Cuba since May, with the activation of Title III of the Helms Burton Act, which includes lawsuits in US courts against foreign companies outside its jurisdiction that have legally invested in Cuba, among other measures.

These sanctions reinforce the US economic, commercial and financial blockade on Cuba and flagrantly violate international law and attack the sovereignty and interests of third countries with the intention of suffocating the Cuban economy to achieve ‘a regime change’, Benitez says. (Prensa Latina)
