Cuban prime minister highlights Fidel Castro's historic speech at UN
Havana, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) Sixty years ago, the rebellious voice of the Latin American peoples was heard for the first time at United Nations in Fidel's words, Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero said on Saturday.
On his Twitter account, the head of Government recalled that on September 26, 1960, the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, delivered his historic speech at the United Nations.
The Cuban people will continue making history because we are continuity, Marrero said.
Previously, President Miguel Diaz-Canel highlighted the validity of Fidel's words and emphasized that Cuba will always address the world under the principle of truth, as the leader of the Revolution did.
Sixty years ago, then Cuban Prime Minister spoke for the first time at the United Nations and his speech, which lasted almost five hours, is among the longest ever delivered there.
The denunciation of several actions carried out by the US Government against the Cuban Revolution and the use of force through the growing arms race were the main arguments of this speech, which provoked standing ovations and applause.
Fidel Castro (1926-2016) arrived in New York City shortly after the Cuban Revolution triumphed in January 1959. This raised the animosity in the US Government, which imposed several restrictions and gave him a disrespectful treatment.
