Havana, October 19 (RHC)-- Cuba described as an offense to the international community a report by the U.S. government on the economic and financial sanctions it applies to third countries.
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez wrote on Twitter that it is 'an offense to the international community and a mockery of the peoples.'
He considered this even more offensive for peoples like Cuba, which suffers from the abuse represented by the blockade accompanied by unilateral coercive measures.
The White House released a report on modifications to make them more effective to the punishments against Venezuela, Iran, China, and Cuba.
Officials indicated that the penalties would be more rigorous.
"The key for us is to make sure that we are in a place where sanctions can be as effective as possible," a senior Treasury official told the press.
He stressed that sanctions would remain a crucial part of U.S. foreign policy.
