Havana, December 17 Cuban President Diaz Canel said on the 17th that the anti-paleo policy of the Trump administration of the United States in recent years to overthrow the Cuban revolutionary regime and force Cuba to give in was “completely failed”.
In his closing speech at the regular session of the National People’s Power Congress held in Havana, the capital of Cuba, on the same day, Diaz-Carnell said that in recent years, the U.S. government has taken measures to obstruct the remittance of overseas Chinese to Cuba, launch Article 3 of the Helms-Burton Act, restrict travel to Cuba, disrupt financial transactions in Cuba, and obstruct
A series of “measures not applicable to peacetime” such as Cuba’s medical cooperation with third countries are aimed at cutting off Cuba’s main source of income and oil supply and strangling the Cuban economy. The U.S. economic embargo against Cuba is “morally and legally untenable”, and Cuba will always resist stubbornly and win.
Diaz-Carnell said that Cuba and the United States do have political differences, but the United States has no right to impose its will on Cuba. Cuba is willing to negotiate with the United States on issues other than sovereignty, revolution and other issues of principle.
After the victory of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, the U.S. government adopted a hostile policy towards Cuba. In 1961, the United States and Gu broke off diplomatic relations.
The following year, the United States imposed an economic and financial embargo and trade embargo on Cuba. In July 2015, diplomatic relations between the two countries were restored, but the United States did not completely lift the blockade against the ancient kingdom. After the Trump administration came to power in 2017, the United States once again tightened its policy towards ancient times.
Since 2019, the United States has continuously upgraded its sanctions against ancient times, allowing the implementation of the whole content of Article III of the Helms-Burton Act passed in 1996 since May 2019.
The article stipulates that after the victory of the Cuban Revolution, the property of some American companies and individuals has been “confiscated” by the Cuban government, and U.S. citizens can bring lawsuits in U.S. courts against Cuban entities and foreign companies with which they use these properties.
Because of concerns that the implementation of Article 3 will seriously affect the relationship between the United States and other countries, successive presidents of the United States have frozen the use of Article 3.
