The ambassador admitted that the path won’t be easy, given the adversities being faced by Cuba, the consequences of Covid-19, the long-lasting economic, financial and commercial blockade established nearly 60 years ago by the United States and the counterrevolutionary groups in Miami.
The Cuban diplomat emphasized that the revolution has been viable for our people and its renewal should involve those who have lived and defended it, and not the sectors that respond to a foreign model.
