Díaz-Canel rejects Trump's hostile rhetoric and tightening of the blockade



Havana, Aug 14.- President Miguel Díaz-Canel today rejected the hostile rhetoric of the United States regarding the suspension of private charter flights to Cuba.

Díaz-Canel said that the measure seeks to further isolate Cuban families, adding the hashtags AquiNoSeRindeNadie, NoMásBloqueo and SomosCuba.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the day before the ban on private charter flights to the Caribbean nation, including Havana (the only ones allowed for months).

However, the director general for the United States of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Carlos Fernández de Cossío, said that the action had little impact but reprehensible for playing with the concerns and needs of family contacts of Cubans on both sides of the Florida Straits .

The sanction, he added, seeks to satisfy the electoral political machinery of South Florida and confirms the contempt of imperialism towards Cubans and Americans of Cuban origin.

Communicated through the social network Twitter in the midst of global efforts to contain the expansion of the Covid-19 pandemic, the measure will take effect on October 13, and is added to others that reinforce the siege by the government of U.S.
