Cuba’s Communist Party chief criticizes US administration’s confrontation
The first Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Raul Castro has criticized the administration of US President Donald Trump for returning to an outdated path of confrontation with the island nation and of intervening in Latin America.
In his statement to mark the 60th anniversary of Cuba's revolution on Tuesday, Mr. Castro said high-ranking officials of the Trump administration with ruthless neoliberal policies are trying to blame Cuba for regional instabilities. The Party leader said Cuba has proved its strength in the past 6 decades that this country can hardly be bullied, but always opens its doors and co-exists peacefully with and respect other countries. Mr. Castro said the real war of Cuba in 2019 is the economic war, in which the people and government need to reduce unnecessary spending and save more.
