Cuban president says sanctions on Moscow, Havana unjust

Miguel Diaz-Canel said accusations on Russia emanate, for example, from Europe " which falls in line with US interests on everything"

MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said on Tuesday that he believed the sanctions that were introduced against Moscow and Havana are unfair and unilateral.

"This visit (to Moscow - TASS) has deep significance for us. We are holding it at a time when both countries, Russia and Cuba, are subjected to unfair and unilateral sanctions," he said at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin.

"We have continually condemned the sanctions on the Russian Federation, as well as the sources of the current conflict, so that people are not misled and Russia isn’t blamed," Diaz-Canel said.

He said accusations on Russia emanate, for example, from Europe " which falls in line with US interests on everything." The Cuban president said that the Russian Federation had long warned the world that "NATO's advance to the borders of Russia is simply unacceptable," but Washington, through its machinations in wars outside its territory, tried to find an opportunity to "emerge as a savior."
