MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Moscow and Havana unilaterally condemn the ever more frequent use of unilateral measures of compulsion, running counter to international law, in international relations. In particular, they are against the use of such measures for replacing legitimate governments by means of economic pressure or destabilization of internal situations, as follows from a joint statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chairman of the Cuba’s State Council and Council of Ministers Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez on common approaches to international relations, adopted upon completion of their talks in Moscow on Friday.
“In the current international situation of growing contradictions in the military, political, economic, financial, technological, information and other fields the use of unilateral measures of compulsion contradicting international law by some countries, groundless accusations and the refusal to comply with the assumed international legal commitments become a destabilizing factor and an obstruction to the normal development of nations,” the statement runs.
Putin and Bermudez expressed their strong disagreement with the Monroe Doctrine, intervention in the internal affairs of sovereign nations having the unalienable right to choose their political, economic, and social systems and their own model of development, as well as an independent foreign policy in accordance with the Havana Declaration which the Community of Latin American and Caribbean states signed in 2014 to proclaim Latin America and the Caribbean as a zone of peace.
