The Cuban delegation to the Summit of the Peoples underway in Panama City revealed details of a meeting held by US-paid mercenaries and officials from that government to discuss how to act during the Civil Society Forum. The Cuban representatives gave the media a document stating that such a meeting was a proof of the servile character of the Cuban-origin mercenaries that were accredited to participate in the Civil Society Forum, held parallel to the Summit of the Americas
Cuban-born Manuel Cuesta Morúa, Laritza Diversent and Juan Antonio Madrazo Luna, along opposition groups from Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Ecuador and Argentina, attended a meeting with Michael Kosack and Jonathan Farrar,
Undersecretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, and US Ambassador to Panama, respectively.
The meeting was summoned by the US officials to coordinate actions and give instructions on how to behave when they were before the legitimate Cuban civil society representatives attending the event.
The press learnt that these mercenaries were told to publicly back the US policy changes towards Cuba in order to make them become a ¨believable opposition¨ in the eyes of the world, and not lackeys of a foreign power.
Kosack and Farrar ordered them not to back up the Miami right-wing statements, which oppose the presence of Cuba in this Summit and the process for the reestablishment of relations between the two countries
Ambassador Farrar ordered them to participate in the event to reinforce the idea of a consensus among the so-called Cuban dissident organizations, and avoiding confrontations and getting a broad media visibility
The Cuban delegation pointed out that both officials were in the past chiefs of the US Interest Section in Havana and knows quite well the lack of morality of these mercenaries
