Guantanamo, November 12 (RHC) Guantanamo will host the Third International Seminar for Peace and for the Elimination of Foreign Military Bases, November 18th to the 20th. With some one hundred delegates from several countries, the meeting will unveil a new scenario in the Cuban demand that the United States gives back the territory it has occupied by force for over a century.
Cuba’s authorities have repeatedly claimed that the Guantanamo Naval Base is the only military facility that the US Government operates in a country with which it does not have diplomatic relations. It represents a violation of international law and its territory must be returned.
According to PL news agency, the meeting will include a visit to the small community of Caimanera, the closest Cuban village to the military base, where the final declaration of the meeting will be made public.
Last October, an Academic Workshop was held in Havana with the participation of experts, who discussed the issue and universally concluded that the US Naval Base in Guantanamo is a violation of the national sovereignty of Cuba.
The US has occupied the base since the beginning of the Twentieth Century without the agreement of Cuba and subsequently against the express will of the Cuban people.
In the twenty year period from 1959 to 1979, 12 thousand 670 violations of Cuban sovereignty and other aggressive actions from the US military base have been recorded and documented.
