The country has overcome first stage of fuel shortage with minimum impact

canel discursoDuring a meeting to evaluate measures taken in the province to address the difficult energy situation, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez insisted, “We are not going to stop dreaming. Our people will continue to be happy, hard-working, creative, and joyful. This is part of the determination we have expressed to never surrender.”

The President of Cuba’s Councils of State and Ministers reiterated that the problem is a result of escalating hostility on the part of the United States toward the country, which has included the obstruction of fuel deliveries.

They are bogged down In Venezuela, he stated, the Bolivarian people are defending their revolution, resisting pressures and economic sanctions of all kinds. So the U.S. wants to blame their failure there on Cuba, and discount the heroism of the Venezuelan people.

Given the empire’s inability to force them to their knees, they decided to increase pressure on Cuba, and spread the idea that problems here are the result of government incompetency.

Díaz-Canel emphasized the importance of maintaining our condemnations of U.S. aggression and ensuring the people’s understanding of the causes of these conjunctural difficulties.

He reported that a tanker arrived on the 14th as projected, and that now the second stage of the response has begun, focused on ensuring that this limited supply of fuel lasts until deliveries arrive at the end of the month and in October, when the situation should return to normal.

“This fight will be won with much organization, much discipline, and by reinforcing austerity and conservation,” he insisted, adding, that the country has overcome this first stage of the fuel shortage with the least impact possible.
