As deputies meet in the lead up to the Ninth Period of Ordinary Sessions of the Eighth Legislature of the National Assembly of People’s Power (ANPP), the body’s International Relations Commission released a statement this July 11, in support of the declaration previously issued by the Revolutionary government on June 16, regarding the President of the United States’ new Cuba policy.

The statement was read out by Yolanda Ferrer, President of the aforementioned commission, in which deputies express their gratitude for the gestures of respect and support toward Cuba from different friends and parliamentarians around the world, especially those from the United States.

The International Relations Committee also reaffirmed that “no one can set standards for the Cuban people. We will never accept any impositions regarding norms of conduct or views about our democracy or the inner workings of our economic, political and social system.”
