*Cuban Foreign Minister in Telesur interview condemns Trump’s aggressive

speech at UN*

*Interview of Bruno Eduardo Rodríguez Parrilla, Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Affairs by Jorger Gestoso, Telesur journalist, at the United Nationsheadquarters, September 19, 2017. **(Courtesy the Council of State,Republic of Cuba) *

*Jorge Gestoso- Mr. Chancellor, thank you for being with us. *

*Bruno Rodríguez – Thank you very much. *

*Jorge Gestoso – Your reaction to this morning’s speech by Donald Trump. **Bruno Rodríguez.- It has been an unusual, aggressive, dominating,blatantly imperialist discourse. *

*I was surprised by the manipulation it makes of the subject of sovereignty, which means sovereignty for the United States, enslavement for all others; completely ignores the concept of sovereign equality that inspires the United Nations. *

*His attack on Venezuela: brutal, unjustified, and arbitrary. Call for additional actions against Venezuela. *

*What do you mean, the armed option, something worse? *

*And I want, then, at the time to condemn his words, to reiterate Cuba’s absolute solidarity with the Bolivarian and Chavista people, with their civic-military union, with the government headed by constitutional
president Nicolás Maduro Moros. *

*Their threat of destruction of a country on the Korean peninsula is extraordinarily serious. *

*It threatens to ignite the Korean peninsula with a necessarily nuclear conflagration, which could endanger all humanity. *
*A conflict that cannot have, in no way, a military solution. *
*The government of President Trump is the government that lost the popular vote, which also has a very low popularity among those who pay taxes in this country; without the least moral authority to criticize Cuba, a small country, an island of solidarity that has extensive international cooperation, a government of recognized cleanliness and transparency, a noble and hard-working people, the seat of the peace process of Colombia, a recognized country as a stability factor. *

*And the head of an empire, responsible for most of the wars that occur today on the planet and that is a factor of profound global instability and very serious threats to peace and international security. *

*I strongly reject President Trump’s proposals. *

*Jorge Gestoso – It was heard the possibility of breaking relations with Cuba, or that they would be significantly reduced. Your reaction?*

*Bruno Rodríguez – Well, the President did not say it in his speech. *

*These are topics that I will discuss later; I will speak in the next few days in the general debate, and I will be able to refer to the issues on the international agenda, including bilateral issues with the United States.*

*Jorge Gestoso- Finally, his reaction to the horrible earthquake that has just lived Mexico of 7.0 and, so far, dozens of dead, a tragedy!*

*Bruno Rodríguez – After the recent earthquake, just on the anniversary of the terrible earthquake that struck Mexico City, I expressed to the Mexican Government, the Mexican people and their delegation here our deep condolences. Also the relatives of the victims, the victims, and we are available to Mexico.*

*In the same way that we are mobilizing our efforts to contribute to the islands of the Eastern Caribbean, particularly Dominica, which has been devastated in a very serious way. *

*We have 36 Cuban employees there and we are finding a way to get more help.*

*Jorge Gestoso – Thank you very much, Chancellor. Thank you very much for being with us.*

*Bruno Rodríguez.- Thanks to Telesur. Thank you very much.*
