Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs Bruno Rodrigues met in Vienna, capital city of Austria, with solidarity with Cuba groups and Cubans residing in that European nation, as part of his working agenda.
According to diplomatic sources, members of the Austria-Cuba Friendship Association 'OKG', and the Association of Cubans residing in Austria 'Cuba Va', were present in the meeting.
The Cuba Va group issued a strong rejection to the speech delivered by US president Donald Trump in Miami on Friday, which it described as interfering.
The message refers to the announcement made by Trump that his Administration will reinforce the financial, commercial and economic blockade of Cuba by repealing several of the executive actions signed by former President Barack Obama.
The message adds that ¨the future of Cuba doesn’t depend on the US or any other country. The future of Cuba depends on the efforts, talents and intelgence of our people¨
Minister Rodriguez thanked both organizations for their statements of support and acknowledged their actions to let the world know Cuba´s reality, and also for their actions in favor of the lifting of the US blockade.
He arrived in Vienna for a working visit on Saturday to strengthen the positive bilateral relations between Cuba and Austria and their economic and trade relations.
