A Cuban Foreign Ministry top official rejected the US decision to deny visa to a medical delegation of the island meant to attend a forum of the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO).
The General Director of the US Office in the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, described the measure announced on Monday by the Department of State as another aggression to the Caribbean island.

‘The US Department of State does it again. Practicing its foreign policy’s coercive measures, the only one it is capable of doing,’ Fernandez de Cossio posted on Twitter.

‘Illegitimate visa restrictions meant to attack Cuba. The recognized international medical cooperation shows a US policy in moral bankruptcy,’ the diplomat wrote.

‘The US Department of State lacks understanding in the moral values related to solidarity and loyalty,’ Fernandez de Cossio stated.

The Cuban medical staff is working in 67 countries, in addition, it is training thousands of physicians from 138 nations. (Taken from Prensa Latina)
