Raul Castro at the session of the UN General Assembly called on the United States to return Guantanamo and spoke out in support of anti-Russian sanctions.

The chairman of the Council of State and the Council of Ministers of Cuba, Raul Castro, in one of his speeches at the UN, said that Cuba sharply criticized the continuing expansion of NATO. In addition, Castro said that Cuba, like no other state in the world, is familiar with what it means to live in conditions of economic and political sanctions for a long time, and by definition cannot approve the sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union against Russia. From such a statement by Raul Castro, it can be concluded that during the last meetings with US officials, the official Havana was asked to support anti-Russian restrictive measures.


Raul Castro at the session of the UN General Assembly called on the United States to return Guantanamo and spoke out in support of anti-Russian sanctions.


In addition to the words of criticism of NATO and other countries that supported sanctions against Russia, Raul Castro noted that today “some countries” are trying to announce that they are allowed to perform any actions aimed at changing the authorities in independent states. According to the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Cuba, this is unacceptable, since in fact it eliminates such a thing as “state sovereignty”. Raul Castro noted that if “certain foreign states” stop interfering in the internal affairs of Syria, trying to change the political system, the Syrians themselves will soon resolve the contradictions.

Raul Castro spoke out and about Guantanamo. His words leads the news agency TASS:
Full relations between Cuba and the United States can be restored only if the United States lifts the economic blockade of Cuba and returns the occupied territory of the Guantanamo naval base.

    No matter what the Americans do and no matter how sweet they sing, they will not succeed in getting closer to the Cubans. Cubans have always been on our side. And how can a dialogue be maintained with a country that, in fact, stopped the economic and political development of Cuba for several decades?

      Cuba, too, has survived the blockade. He knows very well "Danish bringing gifts."

      The Cubans are not on our side, but on their own.
      Honor and praise!
      Unfortunately, at one point in time, our side turned 180 degrees.
      But they did not break!
      And thank God we woke up.
      Castro men !!! Worthy sons of their people.

      And here is "our" side?
      Objective reality, logic and common sense are imputed to subjects and so do not allow to get closer to the yard gopota - America.

        It would be very interesting to listen to all the speakers, with a Russian translation. It would become clear who is responsible and who is not. Who lies under the USA and who can act independently.

      Yeah, they dumped so many feces on the Cubans and waited for them to hold sanctions? In addition, we wrote off 30 billion of Cuban debt.

      in recent meetings with US officials, official Havana was asked to support anti-Russian restrictive measures.

      Well, to what extent arrogance and cynicism must be reached in order to ask for this! At the same time, without lifting the sanctions from Cuba and without returning part of the Cuban territory. Or are the Americans really so stupid?

      Not. Cuba would rather not allow the import of democracy in the form of a revolution (what the Americans hope for, they made contact hoping for it. Undeveloped territory by Amers, "no" democracy. Means a dollar. One could pump in several hundred billion green candy wrappers, fuck Real resources )

      There is no doubt in Raoul. But who will replace him? Only our strong support for Cuba will help pro-Russian forces remain in power after the Castro brothers leave. Yes, and it's time to return to Lourdes. Syria is, of course, good, but "Cuba is far away, Cuba is near." In this context, next to America

    Guantanamo will be returned only when the United States disintegrates, that is, oh how not soon. Thanks for the support.

    I remember how in the 60s, as schoolchildren, they went to the demonstrations with the obligatory attribute - the Cuban flag to the song "Cuba is my love ..." And in the 90s, thanks to the "shit" they forgot about it. But Cuba remembers.

    Guantanomo, they will not return their contract which is "unlimited" and may be terminated "only by mutual agreement of the parties, or if the rental conditions are violated." There can be no violation of the lease, there is US jurisdiction. Everything they do there, everything is in accordance with US law. Mutual agreement on termination is not expected. crying

    Cuba - she is so Cuban. They will not cave under the stars. But Russia needs to be in time. Raise relations, press out the Chinese, stir up the base. Cuba is far from Russia, but close to the United States.

    Take the example of the plebeian west, how to respect your INDEPENDENCE. Words of a proud country.
    And this is not the barking of the Six (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, etc.) from the gateway

    Unlike Ukraine, they didn’t sell, they didn’t betray. “We have many interesting and promising projects in the energy sector, mechanical engineering, and space, and we can achieve serious results in each of these areas,” the Russian president said.

    In this vein, leaders of such countries can act, which are not financially and economically dependent on the US monster. I think, while the “old guard” is in power in Cuba, there is enough wisdom to not recklessly rush into Uncle Sam’s arms and preserve his sovereign dignity.

    the economic blockade of Cuba will be lifted and the occupied territory of the Guantanamo Naval Base returned.

    The reaction of the White House is to remove the flag, to recall the ambassador, to entangle Cuba with sanctions, blockades ...!
    And throw all the sugar out of the White House, in protest, right on the lawn, nafig, and there at least the grass doesn’t grow!

    Small but proud Country! Heroic people with a huge heart! Worthy rulers. For almost 60 years, one family has been leading and after all they have not snickered, have not created an environment that is robbing the country and people! They survived, despite the numerous US provocations ...
