Foundation of African Union recalled in Cuba (+ Photos)

Havana, May 23 (Prensa Latina) On the 59th anniversary of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), today African Union (AU), Cuba on Monday reiterated the ties of friendship and solidarity with the peoples from that continent.

This date was recalled with the laying of a wreath at the Mausoleum of the Veterans of the wars of independence and internationalists, at the Colon graveyard, in this capital, to honor those who were killed during the wars of independence of African peoples.

This solemn ceremony is part of the activities that are being carried out in Cuba as part of the celebrations of Africa Day.

In his keynote speech, Joel Queipo Ruiz, a member of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, recalled that this continental organization was founded on May 25, 1963, in Adis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia, with the goal of sweeping away the remnants of colonialism and move forward with the political and economic integration of its member States.

At the same time, the triumphant Revolution that implemented a foreign policy that respected the right of peoples to their self-determination was being consolidated.

Queipo Ruiz said that the fact that the fight of emerging African nations coincided with the rising Cuban Revolution was the starting point of a relation that has been consolidating amid a complex international scenario.

He also quoted Leader of the Revolution Fidel Castro, when he said that, with its internationalist vocation, Cuba paid its debt to Africa and to all who fought for our dignity and independence, something with which we “simply fulfilled a duty.”
