Cuba demands disclosure of US secret anti-Cuba plan

HAVANA (8 November 2006) ACN - TODAY at the United Nations General Assembly, Cuba urged US President George W. Bush to make public the content of the secret annex of his cabinet's most recent project against the island, the Bush Plan for Transition in Cuba.

Speaking at the UN headquarters, Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Pérez Roque pointed out a peculiarity in the 93-page document, a secret annex that cannot be made public for "security reasons" or for "their effective accomplishment."

Pérez Roque asked if this secret section includes plans for the assassination of high-ranking Cuban officials, more terrorist attacks or a new military aggression, reported Prensa Latina.

In his speech before the UN General Assembly, the Cuban diplomat presented for the 15th consecutive year the draft resolution entitled, "Necessity of putting an end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba."

Pérez Roque briefed the audience on the latest White House aggressions to reinforce the blockade, including an increase of illegal radio and television broadcasts and the implementation of harsh penalties against individuals and companies that violate the blockade.

He also talked about Washington's measures against the exchange between US and Cuban churches, and the prohibition of sending humanitarian aid to religious organizations on the island.

Likewise, the Cuban Minister criticized US efforts to hinder cooperation programs developed by Cuba in the field of health care. He said that Washington might attempt to blockade Cuba from acquiring the necessary medical equipment.
