The recently appointed US Director for Western Hemispheric Affairs, Ricardo Zuniga, encouraged subversive actions in Cuba during his work at the US Interest Section in Havana.
An article by journalist Jean Guy Allard, published on Granma newspaper, reads that Zuniga headed the sector of subversion and dissidents in coordination not only with the US Department of State but also with the Central Intelligence Agency and the Mob in the US city of Miami.
According to Allard, who specializes in issues relevant to the US's hostile Cuba policy, the advisor appointed by Obama in late May achieved a record in terms of interference in Cuba.
His lack of respect was that huge against Cuba, its people and sovereignty that he even encouraged a daily confrontation ambiance based on rude provocations, said the journalist.
In his article, Allard recalled a speech by Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro back in April 2003 in which he cited several incidents linking the newly appointed US official and James Cason, who was the Chief of the US Interest Section in Havana at that time.
In that speech, Fidel Castro said that between January 19 and 25, 2003, both US officials toured the eastern provinces of Las Tunas, Holguin, Granma, Santiago de Cuba and Guantanamo. In these regions they provided counterrevolutionar y groups with "material."
The duet Cason-Zuniga openly dedicated to creating an opposition party in Cuba, the journalist says and adds that at the end of his mission here, Zuniga was acknowledged for his anticommunist work and was appointed official with the Cuba office at the US Department of State.
