The Cuban American Bar Association released a statement on Monday stiffly condemning the Cuban government for its ongoing support of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as much of the international community now recognizes opposition leader Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s president.

“To-date, more than fifty countries worldwide recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate leader of Venezuela,” said CABA President and Kozyak Tropin & Throckmorton attorney Maria Garcia in a statement. “Notwithstanding, the Cuban government finds itself among the list of nations, including China and Russia, who maintain steadfast support for Nicolas Maduro’s repressive, illegitimate regime in Venezuela.”

Cuba and Venezuela forged economic ties after Hugo Chavez came to power in 1999: Venezuela and its state-owned oil giant PDVSA shipped oil to embargo-stricken Cuba in return for medical and security services. But experts say the double-barrel shot of a contracting economy and severe economic sanctions in Venezuela may trigger a collateral economic crisis in Cuba: Venezuelan cuts in Cuban oil subsidies.
