Havana, June 24 (ACN) Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, member of the Political Bureau and head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reiterated today from his account on X that Cuba maintains a policy of zero tolerance against human trafficking.

The Antillean Foreign Minister highlighted in his message that the continued inclusion of Cuba in unilateral and arbitrary reports of the United States (US) government only has the objective of maintaining and justifying its criminal policy of economic asphyxiation against the Cuban people.

“#Cuba maintains a policy of zero tolerance against human trafficking. “Continuous inclusion of our country in unilateral and arbitrary reports of the US government only seeks to maintain and justify a criminal policy of economic asphyxiation against the Cuban people.”

Today the annual report of the US State Department on human trafficking was published, in which the US government arbitrarily kept Cuba at level 3, the worst category, noted the Granma newspaper.

To justify this inclusion, the report, referring to the year 2023, misrepresents and defames the work of Cuban medical collaboration in other nations.

Inclusion on this list may imply sanctions for Cuba such as the freezing of non-humanitarian and non-commercial aid, or the US refusal to allow the Island to receive loans from multilateral institutions.

The Cuban authorities have reiterated on numerous occasions that this qualification has no relation to Cuba’s true performance in actively combating human trafficking.
