The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Relations, Julio Borges, referred this Wednesday to the contracts signed by Cuban companies in the field of telecommunications in Venezuela. Borges affirmed that this has been a mechanism to deepen Cuban penetration in the country and to finance Castro’s dictatorship. He announced the companies involved in these agreements are: Cubatel, Copextel, Albet and Etecsa.
“Cubatel, Copextel, Albet and Etecsa are Cuban companies that have made their fortune thanks to contracts with state companies and public institutions in Venezuela. This has allowed Maduro’s dictatorship to copy the Cuban system of political control and finance Havana,” he said.
The foreign policy representative of the interim government assured that there are more than 5 billion dollars in contracts and that these companies had no experience or knowledge in the area. “When the contracts are thoroughly reviewed, one realizes that these companies had no experience in the area. In addition, they were secret contracts, which were given behind the back of the country and which in many cases constitute a flagrant violation of sovereignty. For example, Cuba had access to the Venezuelan identity system,” he said.
He also reiterated that it is necessary to pressure Havana, in his opinion it is Nicolás Maduro’s most important support. “Maduro has run out of support, he only has Cuba, Iran and organized crime. Cuban intelligence is what allows it to persecute the Armed Forces and civil society, it is a dictatorial apparatus set up to dismantle the internal struggle of the Venezuelan people. Therefore, the world must pressure Cuba and Maduro to achieve a transition,” he said.
Finally, he stressed that he will continue to insist that the international community advance in universal justice in response to the serious crimes committed by Maduro’s regime.
