Cuban Opposition Rosa María Payá Visits The Elected Government Of Uruguay

Montevideo, Jan 23 (EFE) .- The Cuban opposition Rosa María Payá, daughter of the late dissident Oswaldo Payá, visited the headquarters of the elected government of Uruguay on Thursday to meet with the future vice president, Beatriz Argimón.

The promoter of the Cuba Decide project, a platform that pursues that Cubans can pronounce themselves in a plebiscite on the political system they want for the island, asked the future Executive of Luis Lacalle Pou the 'solidarity' of Uruguay 'with the Cuban people'.

Payá went to Montevideo to 'exchange proposals on how to align Uruguay with a regional strategy for the defense of democracy, the rule of law, solidarity with the Cuban people and the Venezuelan people and also for the defense of security, stability , peace throughout the hemisphere, 'he told reporters before his meeting with Argimon.


The intention of the opponent is that "Uruguay's foreign policy aligns itself with concrete actions that will pressure the Cuban dictatorship to put those responsible in the place they must have," he said.

In that sense, he applauded the intention not to invite 'dictators, such as Díaz Canel, as Raúl Castro, as Nicolás Maduro' to the investiture of Lacalle Pou as president of Uruguay, on March 1, something that the appointed chancellor, Ernesto Talvi He did not confirm to the press, because he said that the protocol of the ceremony corresponds to the Presidency and the Chancellery of the current Executive.

Payá was received days ago in Bolivia by its interim president, Jeanine Áñez, which was criticized by the Government of the island through a Twitter message from the Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez.

'Employees of the Government of # USA. they are running to hug and support the Bolivian coup plotters who massacred their people, militarized the country, violated the constitution and acceleratedly try to reverse social advances to favor the oligarchies, 'the Cuban Foreign Minister wrote.

Payá is the daughter of dissident Oswaldo Payá, who died on July 22, 2012 in a car accident, in which Harold Cepero also died. The driver of the vehicle was the Spanish politician Ángel Carromero, of the Popular Party (PP, center right), who lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree. EFE
