Cuba Denounces Subversive Plans by Foreign Political Groups
Havana, August 4 (RHC)-- Cuba denounced the links between right-wing European political organizations and U.S. special agencies to promote subversive actions on the island and criticized rightist politicians and international media outlets for using a car accident that took place on July 22nd as a new pretext to attack the Caribbean nation.
Cuban television aired interviews with European politicians Angel Carromero, from Spain, and Jens Aron Modig, from Sweden, who were involved in the car accident that resulted in the death of Cuban citizens Harold Cepero and Oswaldo Paya, both members of a counterrevolutionary organization, called the Christian Liberation Movement.
Carromero, a youth leader of Spain’s Partido Popular of former government head Jose Maria Aznar, denied fabricated versions that another vehicle had hit their car to cause the fatal incident and he asked public opinion not to manipulate the event with political aims.
Following the car accident the White House Press Office expressed its willingness to support internal subversion in Cuba, and presidential candidate Mitt Romney tried to cast doubts on the investigation carried out by Cuban authorities.
The TV report said that several organizations abroad are receiving money from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to promote new subversion-oriented actions inside Cuba.
The designers of this strategy include the International Republican Institute (IRI), which is a U.S. government think tank, whose plans were known by Aron Modig. Modig attended an international conference at that center before traveling to Cuba.
The television report denounced that the U.S. State Department and the USAID have been allocated 75 million dollars to launch subversive projects against Cuba.
