Cuba Recalls Ambassador from ParaguayJune 26, 2012 | | Print |
HAVANA TIMES — Cuba has called home its ambassador to Paraguay in protest for what it considers a coup last week that removed Fernando Lugo from the presidency.
Cuban President Raul Castro said on Monday that “coups have returned to the continent, but disguised.”
Lugo was removed from office by the Paraguayan Senate on a 39-4 vote. See the Democracy Now report.
The Cuban Foreign Ministry said that the coup adds to the long list of attacks on the self-determination of the Latin American peoples, carried out by the oligarchies with the responsibility, complicity and tolerance of the US government.
