State Department Disappointed With “Non-Democratic” Appointment Of New Cuban Leader

37
In Washington, they are disappointed with the appointment of Miguel Diaz-Kanel as the new Chairman of the State Council of Cuba, Kommersant Statement by State Department spokesman Heather Nauert.




According to Nauert, the US administration believes that the citizens of Cuba could not influence this "non-democratic process" of the transfer of power.

We are disappointed that the Cuban government has decided to stifle independent voices and uphold its repressive monopoly of power instead of letting the people make a sensible choice through free, fair and competitive elections,
she said.

The representative of the State Department added that the new Cuban leader should "take concrete steps to improve the lives of the people, to respect human rights, to stop repression, and also to give people greater political and economic freedoms."

Recall that on Thursday Raul Castro, who ruled Cuba for ten years, handed over powers to his deputy, Miguel Diaz-Kanel. For the first time in the last 50 years, a politician who did not bear the name of Castro and was born after the 1959 revolution of the year became head of the republic.

      maybe our new prime minister will like it ..
      . According to the source of the “Special Opinion”, at the beginning of May after the inauguration, Russian President Vladimir Putin will appoint Dmitry Kobylkin, Governor of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, as Prime Minister of the country. It is likely that Kobylkin will indeed become the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - there are practically no dark spots on his reputation (except for the excessive craving for luxury), and the government apparatus is desperate for new faces

    Not at the door, but at the window ... as I said earlier, mattresses will now engage in the introduction of democracy in Cuba. Another question is how wise the Cuban leadership will be in order not to plunge into this nonsense, taking Washington's "friendship".

    State declares in which to become president does not necessarily need a majority of citizens fool

    Are these State Department "representatives" already like "a plug in every hole"?
    I think that the true State Department “disappointment” was caused by the fact that it was not an opportunity to inspire another “color revolution”, but not by alleged concern for the happiness of the inhabitants of Liberty Island.

    Let this representative of the State Department take care of his black fellow citizens, whom the American police calmly kill at their own discretion. And in Cuba, they themselves somehow figure it out without the United States.

      Somehow even casually (has it become a habit?), Walking under camcorders and car DVRs, do American cops shoot fellow “African-Americans” almost daily? Almost always shot, often by indiscriminate collective shooting (almost point blank), completely unarmed niggas, but with such panic police cries that I wonder at that cop hysteria request .
      And these State Deputies are "disappointed" with the freedom of people living in other countries ...

        Somehow in German media a message appeared that either in 2015, or in 2016, American police officers shot and killed about 950 of their own citizens.
