President Díaz-Canel welcomes the presence of foreign friends in Cuba

Havana, Oct 27 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel celebrated the arrival in the Caribbean nation of foreign friends for their participation in the International Meeting of Communist and Workers' Parties (Eipco), scheduled to take place from today until Saturday.

From his Twitter profile, the president mentioned that the event takes place for the first time on the island, since its founding date in 1998, and predicted, in this 22nd edition, the occurrence of fertile debates aimed at strengthening the anti-imperialist struggle.

According to the Government’s official page on that social network, the space aims at the emergence of reflection, exchange and collaboration, as well as the coordination of common positions and actions and global solidarity in the fight against imperialist aggression.

The meeting, planned from the capital’s Palace of the Revolution, will gather 82 political forces in the world, out of the 117 organizations that currently make up Eipco, formed thanks to the impulse of the Communist Party of Greece, in a context of uncertainty for the communist left.

Emerged a few years after the disintegration of the Socialist Camp in Europe and the Soviet Union, the grouping defends as a premise United we are stronger and confronts, together with social and popular movements, capitalism and its policies and the threat of fascism and war.

The meeting, which will generate a Final Declaration and a Plan of Action, also proposes the safeguarding of peace, environment, workers’ rights and socialism, in a current scenario mediated by war conflicts, economic crisis and negative consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.
