"The U.S. always resorts to the infamous rhetoric to slander a heroic island that suffers a criminal blockade," President Miguel Diaz-Canel tweeted.
Carlos Fernandez, the director of U.S. affairs at Cuba's Foreign Affairs Ministry, rejected the recent report on human rights released by the U.S Department of State (DoS), describing it as politicized and deceitful.
The DoS report serves as a guide to Congress to allow foreign aid; however, the document does not refer to human rights violations connected to police brutality, xenophobia, and arbitrary detention in the U.S.
Cuba, which was elected as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council for the 2021-2023 period, is a party to 44 human rights treaties.
"Outrageous, immoral, and lying accusation... The U.S. always resorts to the infamous rhetoric to slander a heroic island that suffers a criminal blockade causing enormous damage to the Cuban people," Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel tweeted.
