HAVANA, March 10. /TASS/. The Cuban authorities have condemned the decision by US President Barack Obama to impose sanctions against seven government officials in Venezuela. An official statement to this effect has been published on Tuesday by the Grandma newspaper, an official media outlet of the Cuban Communist Party.
"The republic’s government and the Cuban people express their uncompromising support for the legitimate government of Nicolas Maduro and our brothers, the heroes of the Venezuelan people", the statement said.
Accusations against Venezuela, which was located thousands of miles away [from the United States] and had neither strategic weapons nor resources to threaten the US constitutional system, sounded implausible and revealed the true aims of those who present them, it added.
Earlier, the leader of the Bolivarian republic Nicolas Maduro sharply criticized Washington’s move, adding that President Obama wanted to leave a sad legacy behind him, the same as Richard Nixon and George W.Bush. "That’s how he will be remembered for his actions", Maduro said.
He also voiced the conviction that the real threat to ordinary Americans came from the US president and his administration, who carried out "invasions, murders and financed terrorism" in various parts of the world.
