Havana - Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez denounced today that the United States appeals to slander to justify its aggressive policy against Cuba, and its domination interests in Latin America.
Through his Twitter account, the foreign minister lamented that decisions related to entire peoples are in the hands of 'a foreign policy team that is dangerous, irresponsible and without credibility.
In that sense, he explained that 'among the most infamous lies of senior U.S. officials is to mention the presence of Cuban troops in Venezuela, to call the more than 20,000 Cuban aid workers thugs in that country, and to accuse the island of invading and controlling it.
'They are malicious slanders that I refute,' Rodriguez emphasized.
Havana has repeatedly denounced Washington's increased hostility against Latin American nations and the imposition of new sanctions on the island.
The Cuban government repudiates such actions and considers them a clear advance towards a course of confrontation, reinforcing with the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Law, the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed for almost six decades.
