Cuba to defend herself against any US invasion: ambassador
KAMPALA, Apr 16, 2003 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Cuban Ambassador to Uganda Richard Antonio said Wednesday that his nation is going to defend herself against any United States invasion.
The Cuban ambassador made the remarks when he was speaking to the Presidential and Foreign Affairs Committee of Uganda Parliament to acquaint members of parliament with Cuban relations and the United States, Radio Uganda reported on Wednesday night.
Antonio clarified that Cuba has no weapons of mass destruction, saying that what they have is morale to fight.
He said competing militarily with the United States is counter productive.
He also said matters between Cuba and the United States are currently very tense and difficult revealing that at the moment Cuba does not have diplomatic relations with Washington.
On the US-led war against Iraq, the ambassador said as far as Cuba is concerned, Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction.
He explained that however the Cuban government maintains a strong policy against terrorism and that's why Cuba strongly condemned the Sept. 11 attack on the United States.
