The 20 million USD the U.S. administration of Barack Obama is requesting from Congress is intended to subvert Cuba’s internal order, said Kenia Serrano, president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).
According to Washington, sectors of the Cuban population would join the U.S. attempt to undermine the Revolution and destroy its work, Serrano told Prensa Latina.
This has been the case during successive U.S. administrations that have tried to destroy the Revolution from within, encouraging internal divisions, she explained.
While intensifying the battle against the U.S. economic, financial, and commercial blockade and unfair punitive measures, Cuba keeps its friends informed about the different methods adopted by Washington, the ICAP president affirmed.
None of those plots will ever succeed, though, because “the U.S. administration fails to realize that we are updating socialism in Cuba to enjoy more equity and social justice,” Serrano said.
A high wall is erected every day against those intentions, however, and at the same time, a bridge of friendship based on honesty is built between the U.S. and Cuban peoples, she added.
Those of who believe in respect believe that normal relations can exist between the two peoples, but mutual respect is needed, and Cuba can no longer be the country that the United States wants to victimize, she commented.
