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.
