In a speech at one of the panels organized as part of the Virtual Counter-Terrorism Week at the UN, she expressed great concern about the practice of some governments, such as the American, of using hate and discrimination messages in their speeches against nations whose political systems are not like theirs.
As a result, she stressed, extremist and unscrupulous individuals are promoted and encouraged to commit terrorist acts against innocent people.
The Cuban diplomat demonstrated how Washington’s behavior towards Havana is based on an aggressive and hateful and aggressive policy and discourse.
She also referred to the fact that, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the United States Government has unleashed a slanderous campaign against Cuban international medical cooperation, which incites violence against the island’s health workers who work in solidarity with other countries.
In this regard, the diplomat stressed, there is evidence of the participation of U.S. government officials in violent actions against Cuban health collaborators in Bolivia.
A recent terrorist act against the Cuban embassy in Washington is also a direct result of the permanent incitement to violence by U.S. politicians, Rodríguez denounced.
The scourge of terrorism, the Cuban ambassador stressed, cannot be eradicated if double standards, manipulation, political opportunism and selectivity in dealing with it prevail.
