MINSK, 27 May (BelTA) - Cuba opposes unilateral coercive measures against Russia and Belarus, Cuban President Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez said in his video address during the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council summit on 27 May, BelTA has learned.

The Cuban leader stressed that these measures exacerbate the regional and international economic situation.

The Cuban leader stated that the current meeting “is taking place in a climate of international economic crisis, exacerbated by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the military conflict in Europe, which gives rise to a more complex regional and global scenario than last year.”

On behalf of the Cuban people and government, he thanked everyone for their support and solidarity for the recent accident at a Havana hotel that killed 46 people, injured 99 and caused significant property damage.

“Solidarity eases the pain,” the Cuban leader said.
