Díaz-Canel: Fidel Castro’s words on Palestinian issue are valid

Havana, Oct 24 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel stressed the validity of the statements made by the historic leader of the revolution, Fidel Castro, on the Palestinian issue, expressed 44 years ago at the United Nations.

“…the Palestinian issue is the core of the Middle East problem,” the Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban revolution said in a speech before the plenary session of the United Nations General Assembly on October 12, 1979, Díaz-Canel recalled.

The Cuban head of State pointed out on his X account that this continues to be the essence of the problem today, and ratified invariable policy of principles of his country, which practices solidarity with the heroic Palestinian people, systematically attacked by Israel for more than seven decades.

In that memorable speech at the UN, before an audience eager to hear Cuba’s message, and speaking on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement as well, Fidel Castro condemned Israel’s policy of aggression, colonialism and expansionism.

He also denounced the colonial settlements on Palestinian territories that had been occupied by force by the Zionist Government with the unconditional support of the United States, which, according to Fidel Castro, “is a serious threat to world peace and security.”

“The basis for a just peace in the region begins with the total and unconditional withdrawal of Israel from all occupied Arab territories, and implies for the Palestinian people the return of all their occupied territories and the recovery of their inalienable national rights,” Fidel Castro said in that historic speech.

The Cuban leader then noted that these rights include the return of thousands of displaced persons to their homeland, self-determination and the establishment of an independent State in Palestine, according to General Assembly Resolution 3236.
