Raul Castro, a benchmark for revolutionaries in Cuba, president says

Havana, Jun 3 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Thursday congratulated Army General Raul Castro on his 90th birthday, and described him as a benchmark for any communist and revolutionary. On his Twitter account, the head of State pointed out that Raul Castro, brother in blood and ideas of the historic leader, Fidel Castro, and his best disciple, is also a prominent political creator. 'The work undertaken under his leadership of the country in the last decade is colossal. His legacy of resistance to threats and aggressions and in the search to improve our society is paradigmatic,' Diaz-Canel tweeted.

Raul Castro was born on June 3, 1931, in Biran, Holguin province.

He was a member of the so-called Centennial Generation that attacked the Moncada Garrison in Santiago de Cuba in July 1953, and along with Fidel Castro, he began the fight that culminated in the January 1, 1959, victory.

Raul Castro held Cuba’s presidency from 2006 to 2018, amid a difficult situation, during which he created consensus and promoted structural and conceptual changes to update the Cuban economic and social model. In addition, he was the first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba’s Central Committee from 2011 to 2021, when Miguel Diaz-Canel assumed that post.
