By BBN Staff: The Republic of Cuba’s Ambassador to Belize, H.E. Lissette Perez, says that her country supports the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela as it struggles against international pressures attempting to change the current government.
As a sign of her country’s solidarity with Venezuela, Ambassador Perez attended an information session over the weekend that was hosted by the Belizean Organization for Solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution (BELVEN).
The session was geared towards educating participants about the effect that the economic sanctions placed on Venezuela by the United States and its supporting countries, has had on the people of Venezuela.
“We as Cubans know what the blockade means for the country because we have been suffering it for 60 years, that’s why were are in solidarity,” Ambassador Perez said.
She emphasized that Cubans also know what solidarity means, as countries within the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region have stood by Cuba during the blockade. Standing on that support system, she says that Cuba is calling for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing
social crisis in Venezuela, free of any form of military-based solution.
“Any single war in our region affects all of us because we share the same Caribbean Sea. We need to come against hate with love because we are all sisters and brothers,” she added.
The United States recently called on United Nations countries to be prepared to take “concrete action” in the Venezuelan crisis, as the situation continues to escalate. The US has also supported that Opposition Leader, Juan Guaidó take over from current President Nicholas Maduro, and serve as an interim president to get the crisis under control.
