Cuban Revolution Leader Fidel Castro Sends Message to Nicolás Maduro

Havana, December 11 (RHC)-- Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro has sent Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro a message praising his “brilliant and brave speech” on December 6th, just after the results of the legislative vote in that country were released.

Fidel wrote: “I join the unanimous opinion of those who have congratulated you for your brilliant and brave speech on the evening of December 6th, just after the verdict of the vote was learned.”

In his message, Fidel says that the highest political glory that a revolutionary could ever reach was the case of the illustrious Venezuelan fighter and liberator Simon Bolivar, whose legacy does not only belong to that sister nation, but to all Latin American countries.

Fidel recalled that Hugo Chavez understood and admired Bolivar and fought for his ideas until his last breath. Fidel said that the millions of children and young people who now attend the largest and most modern chain of public schools in the world are those of Venezuela. The same thing can be said about that country's network of health care centers that assist that courageous people, which were however impoverished due to centuries of plunder by the Spanish colonial rule first and later by the big transnational companies, which extracted for over one hundred years the best of its oil reserves.

“I'm sure that only through peace for all people on the Earth and the right to turn into common property the natural resources of the planet, as well as sciences and technologies created by the human beings, we well be able to preserve human life on the Earth,” Fidel noted.

In his message, Fidel recalled that security no longer exists for anyone as there are nine countries with nuclear weapons, one of those -- the United States -- launched two bombs that killed hundreds of thousands of people in just three days and inflicted physical and mental damage on millions of helpless persons.

The People's Republic of China and Russia know much better than the United States about the problems of the world, since they withstood terrible wars imposed by the blind selfishness of fascism, said Fidel, and added: “I have no doubt that for their historic tradition and their revolutionary experience, they will do their best to prevent a war and to contribute to the peaceful development of Venezuela, Latin America, Asia and Africa.”
