Mexico’s socialist president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) is vowing to help keep Cuba’s brutally oppressive Castro dictatorship afloat by continuing to ship oil to the communist regime. AMLO has a long history of defending the Cuban dictatorship and supporting his comrades in Havana, sending aid and buying slave labor from the Castro family dictatorship.
Mexico will help Cuba, including providing it with oil, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Monday.
Mexico began regularly shipping crude oil to Cuba at the end of the first quarter of this year. Since then, it has shipped about 2.8 million barrels to the island, which suffers from frequent power outages and fuel shortages, according to independent data.
“However we can help the people of Cuba, we’re going to do it,” said Lopez Obrador in a regular press conference.
He said Mexico did not have to request permission from any foreign government to aid Cuba, which he said suffered from an “inhumane and unjust” embargo.
“If they tell us, ‘Sell us oil, because we don’t have any way of getting it,’ of course we’re going to do so,” Lopez Obrador said, ruling out that the aid could cause frictions with the United States.
AMLO is just one of many world leaders who have financed and supported the Castro dictatorship over the years. He is just another example of how the corrupt Cuban regime can remain in power for more than six decades.
