 Cuba  slams "arrogant" U.S. sanctions

 
HAVANA 5 Dec (ANA) - Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Wednesday railed against new "unjust and arrogant" U.S. sanctions, this time penalizing ships supplying oil from Venezuela.
 
"Trump strikes again: 6 vessels sanctioned for shipping oil from Venezuela to Cuba. Enough of unjust and arrogant sanctions," Diaz-Canel said via Twitter.
 
The U.S. Treasury Department on Tuesday announced it was including six vessels -- five sailing under the Venezuelan flag and one, under the Panamanian flag -- on its list of ships penalized by its Office of Foreign Assets Control for doing business with the island.
 
U.S. President Donald Trump has unraveled his predecessor's rapprochement policy toward Cuba and reimposed sanctions on the island.
 
His administration has also accused Cuba of supporting Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, whose government is also the target of U.S. sanctions.(ANA)
