President Maduro urges to break the hegemony of the story and lies of the West

The meeting between the Cuban head of state and the Bolivarian leader is part of Delcy Rodríguez’s work agenda in Havana, where she traveled to review the current intergovernmental agreements.

Díaz-Canel confirmed to the high-ranking Venezuelan official the will of the Cuban leadership to continue unconditionally supporting the Bolivarian Revolution and continue working on bilateral collaboration programs.

Both leaders exchanged points of view on issues of common interest.

Díaz-Canel sent greetings to President Nicolás Maduro and thanked him for sending donations in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the intensification of the economic war imposed on Cuba by the US Administration.

Regarding the aggressiveness of the White House, he assured that it is growing and is currently expressed through media campaigns mounted on intoxication platforms directed against Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba.

He urged concerted efforts with the Latin American left “to intelligently confront the intense media aggression, knowing that they have an advantage over us on the technological issue, and that we have to look for dynamic, revolutionary ways.”

For her part, Delcy Rodríguez thanked the Cuban president for his welcome, reiterated Venezuela’s unconditional support for Cuba, and denounced that Washington also intensified its economic and financial war against Caracas to try to break the resistance of Venezuelan patriots.

“We already have 502 unilateral coercive measures that suffocate and suffocate the economy, especially for the entry of foreign currency. Venezuela, since 2015, is completely excluded from the international financial system. It is a complex situation, which makes all transactions more expensive”, she explained.

They also discussed Cuba’s current strategy to contain Covid-19, focused on administering booster doses to the population to maintain high levels of immunity.

Among other issues, they insisted that beyond the current conflicts that are fueled and expressed through war, humanity must continue to think about how to save human lives and reduce poverty and inequality.

In addition, they evaluated progress and perspectives of the Bolivarian Alliance for Our Peoples of America-Peoples’ Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP) in the current regional context.

Cuba and Venezuela signed the Comprehensive Cooperation Agreement on October 30, 2000, which includes the development of cooperation programs in a variety of economic and social sectors.
