We would like to express our full solidarity with the fraternal Cuban people and with the Assembly of the People’s Power in the face of this criminal blockade imposed for more than 60 years and tightened by unilateral coercive measures, Group Leader Mohamed Jerri said at a meeting with Cuban Ambassador Miguel Porto.
The lawmaker commented that the July 11 events in Cuba were a vile plan to destabilize the country and undermine the achievements of the Revolution.
The United States intends to do in Cuba the same thing it did in Syria under fake slogans of freedom and democracy, Jari told Prensa Latina after the meeting.
The speeches of some of the 20 lawmakers who make up the friendship group expressed their love for Cuba and its support for Syria, and reiterated their interest in resuming the exchange of parliamentary visits and boosting cooperation with scholarships and vaccines.
For his part, the Cuban ambassador gave a detailed explanation on his country’s efforts to curb the Covid-19 pandemic and the progress made in the development and production of vaccines and the immunization of the people.
Syria and Cuba established diplomatic relations on August 11, 1965, and they have always been based on the constant mutual support for the two nations’ causes at all international forums.
