Latin American Summary, September 24, 2023.
US State Department spokeswoman Kristina Rosales strongly emphasized: “Cuba remains on the list, there is no change, there is no announcement or news,” stressing that any decision in this regard would be made solely by the United States and not through a third country.
Despite the growing calls from the international community for the US government to remove Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism, the spokeswoman for that country’s State Department, Kristina Rosales, has just informed the White House of the decision to persist in injustice and lies .
The spokesman was responding to Colombian President Gustavo Petro’s request to the United Nations to remove Cuba from the list.
Rosales insisted: “Cuba is still on the list, there is no change, there is no announcement or news,” stressing that a decision in this regard would only be made by the United States and not through a third country.
The Yankee official is right, only her government is responsible for this arbitrariness, and only her government will respond to the inevitable judgment of history.
The answer is addressed to hundreds of countries, to millions of people around the world and in their own country who consider Cuba’s commitment to the fight against terrorism to be indisputable and see the use of this list as a means of pressure to punish the dignity of a country.
It is no coincidence that weeks earlier they used one of the main actors of the Cuban-American far right, Orlando Gutiérrez Boronat, to promote a campaign aimed at implicating Cuba in the alleged sending of mercenaries to the war in Ukraine.
The film, worthy of the worst films produced by Hollywood studios, with second-rate actors, a fifth-rate script and a million-dollar budget despite its resounding box office success, tried to fit into the discourse that portrays the Greater Antilles as a terrorist country or supports this scourge.
It is also no coincidence that several media outlets began publishing the opinion matrix before the State Department spokesman’s announcement that Cuba had “few friends” in the United States after its “entry into war” to support its delisting.
But whatever the White House says, the naked truth is worth more than any lie, no matter how well-dressed; and the truth lies on the side of the supportive, dignified and rebellious island.
