Caracas, Venezuela.- The President of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel, arrived on Sunday in Venezuela to partake in the closing ceremony of the 25th Annual Meeting of the Forum of Sao Paulo, which gathered here from July 25 delegations from the Latin American and world left.
‘Tomorrow (this Sunday) we will take to the Sao Paulo Forum in Caracas, Cuba’s messages of invariable political principles, to strengthen the integration of leftist forces and their mobilization against the imperial offensive that has been trying to break us, divide us and confront us,’ the President tweeted yesterday.
The Foreign Minister of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, received on the tarmac of the Simon Bolivar International Airport the Cuban President, who arrived accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodriguez; and the member of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, Victor Gaute.
Likewise, Diaz-Canel will pay tribute to the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chavez (1954-2013), on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of his birth.
‘Fidel said, In Chavez, Bolivar’s ideas reincarnated (…). Perhaps greater attention was never given to the most felt desires and needs of people. Some fruits are already seen. Our heartfelt tribute to Chavez on the 65th anniversary of his birth,’ underscored the Head of State on Twitter this Sunday.
Under the motto ‘For Peace, Sovereignty and Prosperity of Nations’, the Sao Paulo Forum was held from July 25 to 28 in the Venezuelan capital, where representatives of over 100 social movements and left-wing political parties of the world converged.
The event discussed and reflected on the progress of neoliberalism and imperialism on the progressive countries of the region. Scourge, which leads to growing poverty, menace to democracy and peace, attempts to economic, political, social interference and even military interference in Latin America and the Caribbean.
