Buenos Aires, May 29 (Prensa Latina) After 50 years since the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Cuba and Argentina, we reaffirm today our support for the Government of President Miguel Diaz-Canel, Argentina’s Descamisados Peronist Current said on Monday.
In a communiqué, the aforementioned organization also expressed its support to the people of the island ‘in their permanent struggle against the United States’ criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade and for the defense of their national interests’. After years of proscriptions, in 1973 Peronism achieved electoral victory.
On May 28, only three days after taking office as President, Hector Cámpora (1909-1980) reestablished relations with Cuba, interrupted in 1962 due to pressure from Washington and the Organization of American States with the intention of blocking and preventing the changes brought about by the Revolution, the text indicates.
Cuba always had special affection and respect for the Argentine people that it knew and built together with Fidel (1926-2016) and Raul Castro, Ernesto Guevara (1928-1967), Rodolfo Walsh (1927-1977), Jorge Ricardo Masetti (1929-1964), John William Cooke (1919-1968) and Alicia Eguren (1925-1977), among others, it adds.
It also highlights Cuba’s solidarity with those who fought against the last civil-military dictatorship in this nation (1976-1983) and its unconditional support to Argentina’s claim for sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands.
There are strong ties of brotherhood.
In the face of the criminal siege of Yankee imperialism for more than half a century and its harmful and crude campaign of media defamation, the Argentine people continue to respond with love and firm commitment to Cuba and its Revolution, assures the text.
Since 2003, in the face of those who, under US orders, tried to generate false divisions, Fidel, Raul, Nestor Kirchner (1950-2010) and Cristina Fernandez, rescued the legacy of Jose de San Martin (1778-1850) and Jose Marti (1853-1895). No liberation is possible without unity, added the note.
