Cuba Denounces US Radio, TV Aggression
Cuba denounced the sustained US radio and TV aggression on Tuesday, and highlighted the recent support of the World Radiocommunication Conference.

The conference, held in Geneva in November, concluded that broadcasting to Cuba from US aircraft is in violation of the Radiocommunication Regulations, said Ileana Nunez, Cuban ambassador to the UN.

Speaking during the UN Information Committee debate, the Cuban diplomat explained that every week, US-based networks broadcast 1,889 hours of programs to the Island through 30 medium and short waves, FM and TV channels.

They generate 228-253 hours of programs daily, which have nothing to do with balanced, objective information, said Nunez.

She recalled that for fiscal year 2007, the US Congress approved a budget of $36.10 million to fund actions against Cuba, "showing complete disregard for regulations ruling international relations."

She added that 14 of the 19 networks broadcasting anti-Cuban subversive programs aim their signals directly at the Island, including three owned by the US Government itself (Voice of America and Radio and TV Marti).

She denounced that some of these networks belong or serve organizations linked to well-known US-based terrorist elements who act against Cuba with total consent of US authorities.
