HAVANA, December 30. /TASS/. Cuban president Raul Castro has said that the policy of sanctions against Russia destabilizes the international situation. "The policy of unilateral sanctions against Russia and the narrowing NATO circle near its borders are favorable for creating the situation of ‘greater instability and uncertainty in the region," the Cuban leader said on Tuesday. He was speaking at a closed session of the National Assembly of People’s Power (unicameral parliament) of Cuba.

Speaking of "surrogate warfare" and NATO’s destabilizing actions, the 84-year-old politician noted that in North Africa and the Middle East they led to conflicts and poverty that triggered the flows of migrants and refugees. Raul Castro believes that "Europe must assume responsibility and make sure that human rights [of this category of citizens] are respected" and also to contribute to the solution of their problem.

He reaffirmed the right of the Syrian people "in the search for a worthy way out" of the situation "with the participation of the legitimate authorities of this nation without outside interference and preserving its sovereignty and territorial integrity."

In the outgoing year Cuba has boosted political dialogue with many countries, witness the visits of 184 foreign delegations to Cuba, including 25 heads of state and government.
