Miguel Díaz-Canel, First Vice President of Cuba’s Councils of State and Ministers, declared yesterday, June 11, during his remarks to the Peoples’ Summit, that not only is a better world possible, but in fact necessary for the survival of humanity.
The event coincided with the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC)-European Union Summit, also held in Brussels.
Díaz-Canel conveyed greetings to the gathering from the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and President Raúl Castro Ruz.
He noted that the many years of efforts to isolate Cuba in Latin America have given way to a time of changes, which are benefiting the people across the continent.
He likewise highlighted the importance of the CELAC proclamation of the region as a zone of peace, and its call to respect the right of all to choose their own political, economic and social system.
During his much-applauded speech, Díaz-Canel also reiterated Cuba’s support for Venezuela, Argentina, Ecuador, and Puerto Rico in their struggles against U.S. imperialism, and emphasized that the fight to end the U.S. blockade of Cuba continues.
