The EP wants to achieve coherence in the EU’s actions against the Cuban communist regime

The European Parliament wants to achieve coherence in the EU’s actions against the Cuban communist regime.

The Cuban communist regime received a severe setback in the European Parliament today after MEPs adopted a resolution promoted by the ECR Group against the repression of the recent protests over food shortages in the country. According to ECR Shadow Rapporteur Hermann Tertsch, the European Parliament wants to achieve coherence in the EU’s actions against the dictatorship that is systematically violating principles and provisions of the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement between the EU and Cuba. For Tertsch, the resolution “is a win for freedom and democracy but also of the credibility of the European Union”. The text condemns violence and repression against protesters, human rights defenders, independent journalists, artists, dissidents and opposition political leaders, and calls on the European Council to adopt sanctions against the Cuban government.

Speaking after the vote, Tertsch said:

“The Cuban government is not only repressing dissent within the country, it is sewing subversion and violence in other Latin American democracies like Chile in order to destabilize institutions and it tries to impose new regimes conspiring with the drug cartels in Venezuela, Bolivia, Colombia and Peru.

“The ECR group leads the fight for freedom and democracy in Latin America, which is under the continuous threat of communism and narcosocialism sponsored by Havana.”

In March, the ECR group created the ECR-Eurolat Assembly to combat the advance of communism in the Latin America. In mid-June, this assembly held its first major summit in Brussels.
