As part of his agenda in France, he met with Philippe Martinez, secretary general of the General Confederation of Labour (CGT), one of the most important trade unions of this country.

During his stay in France, Guilarte de Nacimiento, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Cuba, shared with attendees details about Cuba’s reality, marked by the impact of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the island for over 60 years.

Regarding the blockade, the Cuban official learned about French trade unions’ condemnation of that policy and was given an update about ongoing actions to support Cuba against the blockade.

One of these actions is the Containers for Cuba initiative, boosted since last year by CGT unions with dozens of tons of basic items collected for the island.

Guilarte de Nacimiento and Cuban Ambassador to France Otto Vaillant thanked the warm welcome of the CTC delegation, whose Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Ismael Drullet, was also a member.
