According to a tweet from the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Gonsalves also praised the extraordinary work in advancing and deepening regional integration and solidarity in accordance with the precepts of Fidel Castro, whom we miss on a daily basis.
“This great Party has been the initiator and continuator of communism, socialism and democratic revolutionary movements in Cuba, at the same time, it has been an example of leadership in the Cuban Revolution,” the message refers.
Gonsalves pointed out that the PCC, the people, and the Revolution are a single, indivisible force in defense of the island’s independence and sovereignty, in the construction of socialism and a high-level just society.
