In his Twitter account, Plasencia slams the intentions of the  European Parliament to use the Human Rights issue in that Caribbean nation as a political instrument.

His statement came right after the European organization introduced Cuba's situation on the Thursday debate once again. This was the fourth time in the parliamentary session that this matter was on the table.

We had a pleasant meeting in Havana with the Foreign Minister and friend Bruno Rguez .P., framed in our political consultation mechanism. Our teams carried out exchanges to develop and deepen cooperation in bilateral and multilateral matters.

"Cuba is the only country in Latin America and the Caribbean about which there has been so much discussion (…) it shows the manipulation of the issue of human rights and the double standards of those who use it with a markedly political background," decreed Plasencia.

He explains that MEP would denounce the systematic violation that blockade represents for the Human rights if they were really interested in the human rights of Cuban people.
