As this January 1 marks the 63rd anniversary of the triumph of the Revolution, the ASAC takes the opportunity to honor the intrepid Cuban people “for having preserved this historic legacy, heritage of humanity,” the organization stated.
In a message sent to the Cuban Embassy in Luanda, ASAC General Secretary Fernando Jaime also reiterated the infinite will to reinforce the bonds of brotherhood that have always characterized friendly relations with Cuba.
In the opinion of the Association, nothing justifies maintaining the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the Government of the United States on Cuba.
In January 2021, the ASAC requested US President Joe Biden to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba, in a letter delivered in Luanda to the US Embassy, with reference number 01/GSG-ASAC/2021.
Under the Covid-19 conditions, the celebrations here on the anniversary of the Cuban Revolution have generated a wide flow of information on social media, including texts, photos and videos, among them, the one shared by the ASAC, which in 2021 was one of the Angolan organizations awarded with the “60th Anniversary of ICAP” (Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples) decoration.
Yandri Peña, second secretary of the Cuban Embassy, told Prensa Latina that the decoration was exceptionally granted and for only one time to entities from different parts of the world with an outstanding record of solidarity with his country and that have contributed to strengthening friendship between several countries.
