Cuba Ratifies Commitment to the Caribbean’s Historic Struggles

Georgetown, Jun 12 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Rogelio Sierra ratified today his country’s commitment to the struggles of the Caribbean Community in the international arena.

The diplomat began today an official visit to Guyana, after fruitful work stops, in Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname and Barbados.

In his official Twitter account, Sierra expressed that for his nation, relations with CARICOM’s members are a priority.

‘Cuba considers fair that the countries of the region demand compensation for the damages, looting and abuses committed by the imperialist powers during centuries of slavery and colonialism,’ he stated in another message.

In addition, he reiterated the gratitude to the Community for the support in the Cuban fight against the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed over 50 years ago by the US government.

The Deputy Foreign Minister deemed as very valuable the support of the Caribbean States in the resolution that his country presents annually in the United Nations to condemn this unfair policy.

The visit to Guyana will end tomorrow, when Sierra leaves for Jamaica where he will end his tour of the Caribbean on June 16th.
