Washington spending $37 million this year on propaganda attacks
UNITED NATIONS, October 16.- Cuba has denounced here the growing U.S. radio-television aggression against the island, to which Washington assigned $37 million this year.
Ileana Núñez, acting Cuban ambassador to the UN, approached the subject in a speech during the 4th Commission of the General Assembly dealing with issues related to information.
She noted that those radio and television attacks have been occurring for years and have increased recently, with the utilization since last August of a new G-1 aircraft to increase TV transmissions from one to six per week.
At the same time, she added, on August 11 there were simultaneous transmissions from two aircraft on 213 MHZ, which interfere with six service areas of a similar number of stations listed in the Frequencies Master Register.
The ambassador noted that this U.S. radio-electronic and television war on Cuba directly violates the letter of or infringes the spirit of a large number of international agreements and those of telecommunications
Núñez noted that, every week, broadcasting stations located in U.S. territory transmit more than 2,240 hours of radio and TV towards Cuba on 30 different frequencies.
Some of those are U.S. government stations and other belong or lend their services to organizations linked to known terrorist elements who reside in and commit anti-Cuba acts from U.S. territory with the full consent of the Washington authorities, PL reports.
