He added that this assistance by the neighboring countries has been remarking the proof of friendship and solidarity.
Miguel Díaz Reynoso said, “That’s what President Obrador asked for. For Cuba to have what it needs now, and that’s what is being shipped.”
Cuba had also been warned by the president of the United States, Joe Biden, that they would impose more sanctions on the Caribbean country in the future.
New sanctions have been imposed against two top Cuban officials & the Cuban National Revolutionary Police by the Biden administration for their part in the crackdown against antigovernmental protesters in Cuba. Thousands of people gathered on the streets of Cuba and made it one of the biggest protests in the decades.
The announcement of the new sanctions was made just before President Biden led a meet for the Cuban-American leaders. This meeting was attended by Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., and Manny Diaz, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, at the White House Friday afternoon.
This meet was hosted to discuss the sanctions & other features of the U.S. response to the regime’s violent removal of the peaceful protests.
