Cuba refuses to include religious freedom in the blacklist

Many voices in Cuba today rejected the Caribbean nation’s inclusion in a religious freedom punitive list drawn up by the United States.

On social media, Cubans express their dissatisfaction with the arbitrary list and affirm that religious institutions in the country have the right to practice their beliefs in accordance with the law and with respect for all.

Last Friday, Cuba and Nicaragua were included in a list drawn up unilaterally by Washington of countries that, in the opinion of the US government, systematically violate religious freedom, entailing possible sanctions against those countries.

In this regard, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez expressed on Twitter that the classification of the island “in an arbitrary list shows that the United States government needs once again to resort to dishonorable accusations to maintain an unsustainable policy of abuses against the Cuban people.”

Press reports indicate that in the list of “Countries of Special Concern”, compiled annually by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, China, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, Myanmar, Saudi Arabia, Eritrea, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.
