The World Peace Council condemns strongly the decision of the US
Attorney General, on behalf of the US administration, to announce
criminal charges against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of

Donald Trump's government decided to reinforce the criminal sanctions that the United States has maintained and intensified against Iran for decades. The US peace movement has already denounced the perversity of such a measure, especially considering that Iran is one of the countries most affected by the global coronavirus outbreak, with more than 17,000 confirmed cases of contamination and more than 1,000 deaths registered thus far, while there is still a lack of vital medicines and medical equipment for the Iranian people to face the pandemic.

Cuba volta a dar exemplo de solidariedade e humanidade, desta vez na luta contra a pandemia de coronavírus, não só fornecendo apoio médico a tantos povos desprovidos de assistência e avançando a passos largos na pesquisa para o desenvolvimento de uma vacina como, mais recentemente, ao permitir que um cruzeiro britânico com passageiros contaminados pelo vírus atraque na ilha revolucionária.
