In declarations to Prensa Latina, Tsavdaridis affirmed that this Caribbean nation remains at the forefront of the struggle for peaceful coexistence, and an expression of that commitment is the upcoming VII International Seminar on Peace and the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases to be held in its territory.
Coinciding with that event, to be held from May 4 to 6 in the eastern city of Guantanamo, will be the XXII World Assembly of the WPC, preparatory to the global meeting scheduled for this year in Hanoi, Vietnam.
On these meetings, also sponsored by the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), the Greek leader pointed out that they have a special symbolism for being held in a territory of Cuba where the United States maintains a military base illegally, against the will of the people and the government of the island.
He also affirmed that it will be a recognition of the successes of this Antillean nation in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, and its contributions to the world through the development of vaccines and health assistance to some 50 countries, in spite of the intensification of the economic, financial and commercial blockade of the United States.
In this contact, the president of ICAP, Fernando González, reaffirmed Cuba’s commitment to peace and reiterated the island’s support to this organization, based in Athens, Greece, since 2000, in which organizations and movements from more than 90 countries participate.
