Cuba's Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, has accused the Trump administration on Wednesday of attacking international law and sovereignty by activating Title III of the Helms-Burton Act. Shortly after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Twitter Washington's decision to allow claims in U.S. courts over 'confiscated' property (as they call nationalizations done in the wake of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution), Rodriguez expressed his strong rejection in social media.

The People''s Power National Assembly condemned the hostile policy by the Government of the United States against the Caribbean island and the Helms-Burton Act, a genocidal extraterritorial project against the Cuban people.

"Washington is trying to activate that law aimed at taking us back to the beginning of history when we were a slave nation of an empire", Diaz-Canel underlined at the extraordinary session of the Cuban Parliament.
