Puerto Rico, Cuba pay tribute to former diplomat Ricardo Alarcon

Havana, Sept 22 (Prensa Latina) A commemorative plaque in honor of former Cuban diplomat Ricardo Alarcon (1937-2022) was unveiled on Thursday by the Mission of Puerto Rico in this capital and the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).

In the context of the Day of Solidarity for the Independence of that nation, Cubans and Puerto Ricans reaffirmed the bonds of friendship and respect professed by the Cuban politician to the Puerto Rican people.

The co-president of the Hostosiano National Independence Movement, Julio Muriente Perez, described Alarcon as a Puerto Rican born in Cuba, and who set aside a piece of his heart for the sister island.

Moreover, he said that he was one of the fundamental links of solidarity between both peoples.

Meanwhile, Margarita Alarcon, daughter of the renowned Cuban philosopher, said that her father assumed the independence of Puerto Rico as part of his existence.

In the emotional tribute, ICAP president, Fernando Gonzalez, said that it is up to this organization to be the continuation and expression of the consecrated life of this Cuban writer. He added that the struggle for the independence of Puerto Rico is permanent.
