The secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People's Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP), Sacha Llorenti, denounced that the United States is intensifying its actions to destroy that regional bloc.
In a television interview, the official said that this organization "is an example of the possibility of building a fairer and more humane world, that is not based on the rules of capitalism." And he added: "For the United States, it is essential to put an end to this example."
Sacha Llorenti stressed that the campaigns and attacks against countries such as Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela seek to destroy these successful alternative models.
"ALBA-TCP is an expression, it is the Bolivarian alliance and it becomes a target of those interests," he pointed out, adding that "the U.S. empire uses multilateralism as a concept to its convenience."
The secretary of ALBA-TCP recalled that the unilateral sanctions are nothing more than coercive measures intended to cause collective damage through hunger, to deteriorate the economy in order to bring about political changes.
In recent declarations to Prensa Latina, Sacha Llorenti, on behalf of the alliance, repudiated the destabilization attempts against Cuba and demanded the lifting of the coercive measures.
He stressed that it is no coincidence that in the midst of the scourge of the COVID-19 pandemic, Washington's illegal and criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade against the island is intensifying. He said that the U.S. is also trying to ignore the fact that this is the real cause of the difficult situation that this nation is experiencing.
He recalled that in a recent meeting with the presidents of the media of the member countries of the regional alliance, it was agreed to create a united front to combat media manipulation and make known to the world what is really happening in Cuba and in the countries of the entity, victim of the campaigns of the White House.
"In the face of reactionary and counterrevolutionary lies, the truth must prevail and dismantle the communication matrices that are being put together around the Cuban reality."
