US Executive Order against Venezuela

Embassy of the Republic of Cuba

Statement from the Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba

Press release

10 March 2013

Cuba states its position with regards to the aggressive Executive Order issued by the President of the United States against the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which declares the country a threat to U.S. national security

The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba has learnt of the arbitrary and aggressive Executive Order issued by the President of the United States against the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which declares the country a threat to its national security, in reprisal for the measures adopted by Venezuela in defense of its sovereignty against the interventionist actions of the U.S. Congress and governmental authorities.

How does Venezuela threaten the United States? Thousands of kilometers away, without strategic weapons and without employing resources nor officials to plot against U.S constitutional order, the statement is unbelievable, and lays bare the intentions of those who have come up with it.

However, such a statement during a year in which legislative elections will be held in Venezuela reaffirms once again the interventionist nature of U.S. foreign policy.

The severity of this executive measure has alerted the governments of Latin America and the Caribbean who, in January 2014, at the Second CELAC Summit in Havana, declared the region a Zone of Peace, and these countries repudiate any act prejudicial to this, as they have accumulated enough experiences of imperial intervention throughout their history.

The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba reiterates once again its unconditional support and that of our people for the Bolivarian Revolution, the legitimate government of President Nicolás Maduro Moros and the heroic sister nation of Venezuela.

Nobody has the right to intervene in the internal affairs of a sovereign State or to declare it, without grounds, a threat to its national security.

Just as Cuba was never alone, Venezuela will not be either.

Havana, March 9, 2015
