Havana, November 29 - The International Relations Committee of the National Assembly of People's Power voiced its most energetic rejection of the Common Resolution, approved by a 56% majority in the European Parliament on Thursday, for its interfering content and harmful to Cuban sovereignty, with absolute ignorance of the island's reality.
The parliamentary body stated that the European text responds to a new slander campaign orchestrated by the U.S. government as part of its failed policy of hostility and aggressions against Cuba, increased during the last months.
The International Relations Committee expressed its deep concern that a group of MEPs from some right-wing political forces within the European Parliament, echoing this campaign and with evident political motivation, have lent themselves to orchestrate this anti-Cuban maneuver, by promoting such a pronouncement in that forum, in frank subordination to the U.S. imperial desires against Cuba, which contradicts the spirit of respectful dialogue that has prevailed in relations between Cuba and the European Union.
Following its usual course of action -- the statement adds-- the United States of America finances activities that threaten the constitutional order in force in Cuba, attempting to recruit mercenaries to artificially manufacture the "opposition" they desire, in the absence of legitimate support for their purposes of domination.
Such is the case of José Daniel Ferrer, whose criminal trajectory has been duly documented.
The statement noted that there are numerous actions supported by the U.S. government --- that it would never allowed in its territory--- which openly violates the bilateral Agreement on the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two countries and disrespects the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and International Law. This constitutes a clear and unacceptable interference in the internal affairs of Cuba.
The Committee on International Relations reiterated that unacceptable Resolutions such as the one approved only serve as a basis and support for the attempts of the government of the United States of America to destroy the noble and generous work of the Cuban Revolution and to justify its blockade policy, which constitutes the most dangerous and flagrant violation of the human rights of all our people.
Finally, it expressed to the European Parliament the willingness of Cuban legislators to continue maintaining relations with the European Parliament and exchanges with its members on the basis of recognition of our differences and respect for our independence and sovereignty, in accordance with the principles of international law.
