During the White House Cuba allowed the defense minister and the ‘black berets’ to suppress the protests In recent weeks, Sanchez responded to a question about this decision, which calls for “unity” with the Cuban people, who are facing a very strong crisis due to the collapse of the Govt-19 and tourism.
The Spanish president has criticized the Cuban regime, saying he and his administration “called on the Cuban government to make reforms to start the road so that citizens can enjoy the same rights and freedoms as the Spanish.” But at the same time, Sanchez stressed, “To understand globally what is happening in Cuba, you need to see how the Govt is attacking Cuba more severely, especially tourism and a more fundamental sector of the embargo.”
