Sweden Warned of US Cuba Scheme

By Prensa Latina

Stockholm : The Swedish government was warned of new pressures by the United States on European Union (EU) countries to join the growing hostility against Cuba.

The warning was contained in a letter by Tomas Wilden, member of the Swedish-Cuba Association, to Per Norstrom and Hanna Lambert, deputy director and official, respectively, of the Swedish Foreign Ministry´s Americas desk.

The text called attention to the tour of different European countries by Caleb McCarry, US State Department Cuba Transition Coordinator.

The purpose of his tour is to force European leaders to reject lifting measures adopted by the EU against Cuba in 2003, a subject that will be analyzed in June by the continental organization, the letter warned.

Elimination of the EU position would mean an improvement of relations with the Island, Wilson adds.

The letter expresses amazement that a foreign power like the United States considers the social system in Cuba unacceptable and assumes the right to threaten, attack, blockade and use violence to work against it.

It adds that the Washington plan against Cuba has a secret section that “can only refer to none other than military actions.”

Widen also presides the Swedish committee for the freedom of the Five Cuban anti-terrorists jailed in the United States.
