The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Venezuelan People and Government, greets the brotherly People and Government of the Republic of Cuba on the 68th anniversary of July 26th, the commemoration of the Assault on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Barracks, Day of National Rebellion.
As Fidel said and Moncada taught, Cuba continues transforming “setbacks into victories”; Cuban science, its international medical brigades, its successful vaccine candidates against COVID-19 are clear examples of this.
Today, in the midst of the adversity of the pandemic, the Cuban people face with conviction and patriotism a new imperialist onslaught: the cruel resurgence of the blockade, unanimously rejected by the international community; to which is added a cynical international campaign and violence acts and internal destabilization, by means of which they intend to break the nation.
Venezuela joins Cuba in this hour of struggle and new victories and calls upon the world to raise its voice in defense of the sovereign right to life and peace of the Cuban people.
With Fidel: To victory always!
Caracas, July 26th, 2021
