The article is dedicated to the 200th anniversary of Greece’s independence and the rich Cuban history and culture, an important part of ties between both peoples, the Cuban Embassy in Athens stated on Monday.
Although Cuba’s independence from Spanish colonialism was much later than that of Greece, the influence of the Greek Revolution was an important source of inspiration for Cuba’s intelligentsia in the 19th century, Dominguez pointed out in her article.
However, with the Revolution that triumphed on January 1, 1959, Cuba achieved its true independence and national sovereignty, fulfilling the dreams of Cuban heroes such as Jose Marti, the diplomat wrote.
It was after 1959 when the Cuban people began to rule their own destiny and guaranteed their full rights and dignity. Since then, they have held high the flags of dignity, freedom, independence, sovereignty, unity and integration of Latin America and the Caribbean, she stated.
The key to victory along these six decades has been the close unity of the people around its vanguard and the leadership, which continues to be essential to carry forward the revolutionary process, the ambassador concluded.
