Noam Chomsky: Cuba is the only country that has shown genuine internationalism

24.04.2020, Tucson.

The only country in the world that has shown genuine internationalism during the coronavirus pandemic is Cuba, US philosopher and political scientist Noam Chomsky said in an interview published on April 23 by the Granma Cuban newspaper.

According to the political scientist, despite the difficulties and the pressure from the Unites States, Cuba has sent medical teams across the world; this can serve as an example for other countries.

“The only country that has demonstrated genuine internationalism has been Cuba,” which “has always been under economic strangulation by the United States and by some miracle have survived to continue showing the world what internationalism is.”

According to Chomsky, despite the help Cuban doctors provide internationally, in the USA one cannot express any positive attitude to this country; instead, “what you have to do is blame them for human rights violations.”

However, it is the USA that is a major party responsible for human rights violations.

“In fact, the worst violations of human rights take place in the southeast of Cuba ― in a place called Guantánamo ― which the United States took at gunpoint and refuses to return,” Chomsky said.
