Havana, Jun 4 (Prensa Latina) The International Relations Committee of the Cuban Parliament today expressed its solidarity with the National Assemblies of Nicaragua and Venezuela against the attempts of the international right to destabilize those countries.
‘We support the efforts of the Nicaraguan government led by President Daniel Ortega to solve the protests that began on April 18, based on peace and dialogue,’ according to the document read by the group’s president, Yolanda Ferrer.
Cuban parliamentarians reaffirmed their commitment to the proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a zone of peace, signed during the 2nd Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States held in Havana in January 2014.
‘We demand that the right of the Nicaraguan people to live without violence be respected and we reject interference in the internal affairs of the Central American country,’ according to the document.
The declaration also condemns the camouflaged attempts to defeat the government of reconciliation and national unity, which has achieved remarkable social, economic and security progress in favor of its people.
The International Relations Commission of the National Assembly of People’s Power of Cuba also expressed its support and solidarity to the Venezuelan parliament and recognized its role as defender and constitutional guarantor of the conquests of the people and the Bolivarian Revolution led by Commander Hugo Chavez (1954 -2013).
The deputies rejected the attempts of the United States government, right-wing forces and the Organization of American States with a view to destroying that process of change and its legitimate government emerged from a democratic and transparent process.
Likewise, the legislators endorsed the recent words of the Cuban president, Miguel Diaz-Canel, during his visit to Venezuela, where he said: ‘Our solidarity with Venezuela, with the Bolivarian and Chavista Revolution, with the civic-military union of its people and with its president Nicolas Maduro is invariable.’
The deputies reiterated their firm commitment to accompany Venezuela and its National Assembly in the struggle for its self-determination, independence and sovereignty, while at the same time exhorting the goodwill parliamentarians in the world to defend democratic principles and non-interference in other countries’ internal affairs.
Both statements took place during the first meeting of the International Relations Commission of the National Assembly of the People’s Power of Cuba in its 9th legislature, at the Havana Convention Center.
