The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba condemns the escalation of pressures and actions by the U.S. government in preparation for a military adventure under the guise of a “humanitarian intervention” in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and calls on the international community to mobilize in order to prevent its consummation.
Between February 6 and 10 of 2019, several military transport aircraft have flown to the Rafael Miranda Airport in Puerto Rico, the San Isidro Air Base in the Dominican Republic, and other strategically located Caribbean Islands, most certainly without the knowledge of the governments of those nations. These flights took off from U.S. military facilities where Special Operation Troops and U.S. Marine Corps units operate. These units have been used for covert operations, even against leaders of other countries.

If I know anything, it is people, because like your selves, I am a man of the people. I was born and raised in a poor neighborhood of Caracas. I was forged in the heat of popular and union struggles in a Venezuela submerged in exclusion and inequality. I am not a tycoon, I am a worker in thought and heart, today I have the great privilege of presiding over the new Venezuela, rooted in a model of inclusive development and social equality, envisioned by Commander Hugo Chávez since 1998 and inspired by the Bolivarian legacy.

We are today living a historical moment. In these coming days, the future of our countries will be defined, as one of war or peace. Your national representatives in Washington want to bring to your borders the same hatred that they sowed in Vietnam. They want to invade and intervene in Venezuela – they say, as they said then – in the name of democracy and freedom. But this is not so. The story of the usurpation of power in Venezuela is as false as the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. It is a false case, but it ca Continue reading

“Restore services, collect debris, care for victims, plan, and organize donations, give priority to the most vulnerable” were lines of action emphasized by Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, President of Cuba’s Councils of State and Ministers, during his comments on the television program Mesa Redonda, devoted yesterday to the recovery underway, following the January 27 tornado that hit Havana .
The President said that Army General Raúl Castro and José Ramón Machado Ventura, first and second secretaries of the Communist Party of Cuba, respectively, are attentive to progress being made in recovery efforts.
“We are going to pick ourselves up, because in Cuba, as the song says, the day always dawns after the darkest night, because we are continuity,” he said.
Díaz-Canel reiterated condolences on behalf of the Party, the government, and other organizations, to families afflicted by the loss of human life, the injured, and those who suffered the loss of property and damage to their homes.
“This event differs from those we are accustomed to facing. A tornado cannot be predicted like a hurricane. Information had been announced about forecasts of thunderstorms, high probability of rain … and measures were adopted, like not holding the March of the Torches as usual on January 27. What we could not anticipate was that an event of this magnitude would develop, a scale EF4 (tornado).”
After the tornado, the response of leaders and cadres of the Party and government, the National Civil Defense General Staff, with cooperation from central state administration agencies, was immediate, he recalled.
“It should be noted that there were firefighters, rescue workers, emergency services, the Revolutionary Armed Forces, and the people. From the first moment the people were present,” he said.
Diaz-Canel recalled that the Provincial Defense Council met at 8am the morning of the 28th, and the Council of Ministers was convened two hours earlier.
Before dawn, he said, “Several ministers were present where the most complex problems were occurring,” he said, adding that experience was gained and lessons learned, which should be shared with the population.
To do so, and to provide information on the recovery work of many organizations and people, he suggested presenting another Mesa Redonda program on the issue, next week.

Mr. President,

Latin America and the Caribbean is today the scenario of persisting threats, inconsistent with the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace signed by the Heads of State and Government at the Second Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States in January 2014.

This commitment implies fully respecting the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, not intervening, directly or indirectly, in the internal affairs of any other State and observing the principles of national sovereignty, equal rights and self-determination of peoples.

The current U.S. administration has proclaimed the validity of the Monroe Doctrine and, in a new deployment of its imperial policy in the region, threatens Venezuela with special fury and declares that it has “all options on the table”.

The region resembles a large meadow in times of drought. A spark could generate an uncontrollable fire that would harm the national interests of all.

Mr. President,

We regret that the United States government intends to use the Security Council to legitimize the international campaign against the constitutional government presided over by Nicolás Maduro Moros.

The main threat to peace and security in Latin America and the Caribbean is the harassment by the United States and its allies against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, in open disregard of the popular will and the institutionalism of that country expressed in the elections of 20 May 2018, from which the Venezuelan opposition excluded itself.

We reiterate our full support for the Bolivarian and Chavez’s Revolution, for the civil-military union of the Venezuelan people and for their legitimate and democratic government, led by the constitutional president Nicolás Maduro Moros.

We strongly condemn the attempt to impose through a coup d’état a government at the service of the United States in Venezuela and the recurring calls to the Bolivarian military to join this onslaught.

The sovereignty of our peoples is resolved today in the attitude towards Venezuela. Supporting the legitimate right of the sister nation to define its destiny is to defend the dignity of all.

Mr. President,

Other attempts should not be forgotten, such as the military coup of 2002 and the oil coup of 2003, the aggressive Executive Order of the United States that qualifies Venezuela as “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy” of the superpower, the unilateral coercive measures, the call to a military coup against the constitutional Government of Venezuela, the warning of the President of the United States to use “a possible military option” and the attempted assassination on 4 August against President Maduro.

Mr. President,

The acts of a group of countries and the shameful role of the OAS constitute a new and desperate attempt to implement an unsuccessful policy of regime change, which has not been imposed due to the unwavering resistance of the Venezuelan people and their willingness to defend the national sovereignty.

We reaffirm our steadfast respect for the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of States, for the non-use or threat of use of force in international relations and for non-interference in the internal affairs of States.

The sovereign will of the Venezuelan people will prevail over imperialist intervention. History will judge those who encourage and recognize coup usurpation.

Thank you very much.

The Venezuelan people are mobilized, following the call of their legitimate President,Nicolás Maduro, to defend their sovereignty, peace and constitutionality, after recent moves in the United States to instigate a coup.

The maneuvers came after Juan Guaidó, president of a National Assembly in contempt, declared himself interim president of Venezuela, and was recognized as such by the U.S. and its allies.

Despite this, the Maduro government continues to enjoy the majority support of the international community, with global powers such as Russia and China reiterating its legitimacy and condemning any foreign interference.

GOVERNORS, SUPREME TRIBUNAL OF JUSTICE, THE ELECTORAL AND CITIZEN POWERS UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION

The Electoral Power of Venezuela, represented by the National Electoral Council (CNE), demanded respect for the will of the Venezuelan people, who constitutionally elected Nicolás Maduro for a second term as President in May 2018. “The CNE repudiates and condemns the complete disregard and violation of the constitutional order demonstrated on January 23,” stated CNE President Tibisay Lucena.

The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba condemns and energetically rejects the attempt to impose a coup d’etat, a puppet government at the service of the United States, in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and expresses its unwavering solidarity with the government of Constitutional President Nicolás Maduro Moros.
The true objectives of actions against Venezuela are to control the vast resources of this sister nation and destroy the value of its example, as an emancipatory process defending the dignity and independence of Our America.
As President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez said: “The sovereignty of our peoples is expressed today in one’s attitude toward Venezuela. To support the legitimate right of the sister nation to define its own destiny is to defend the dignity of all.”
Other coup attempts should not be forgotten, such as the military coup of 2002 and the 2003 oil lockout; the aggressive U.S. Executive Order describing Venezuela as “an unusual and extraordinary threat to national security and foreign policy” of the superpower; unilateral coercive measures; the call for a military coup against the constitutional government of Venezuela; the President of the United States’ threat to use “a possible military option” and the August 4 assassination attempt against President Maduro.
The acts of a group of countries and the shameful role of the OAS constitute a new, desperate attempt to implement an unsuccessful policy of regime change, which has not been imposed due to the unwavering resistance of the Venezuelan people and their determination to defend national sovereignty.
