Cuban youth leadership thanks China for its support and solidarity

Beijing, May 7 (Prensa Latina) Cuban youth leaders today thanked China's Young Communist League (LJCCh) for its firm support in denouncing the U.S. blockade.

Meyvis Estevez, first secretary of the Union of Young Communists of Cuba (UJC) conveyed this message during her online participation in the Youth Work Seminar, held in this capital.

The leader highlighted the recent celebration of the 12th Congress of the UJC, an event that addressed ‘the importance of improving the political-idological work with young people in order to deepen the knowledge of history and the legacy of heroes and martyrs’.

Estevez emphasized the relevance of generating a call among the children and teenagers of the island, as well as promoting debates on the national socio-economic reality from the base.

In this sense, she commented that the topics discussed there are of interest for the organization and the country in general, such as the fight against crime, the prevention of drug consumption, the reduction of teenage pregnancy, among others.

The first secretary took the opportunity to call her interlocutors to the 5th International Congress of Youth Researchers on Youth from September 24 to 27.

We intend to continue generating theoretical discussions and practical applications that will allow us to improve our work with youth,” she said in reference to this event.

He reiterated his gratitude to the Communist Youth League of China for its support to the island and for its ‘permanent practice of solidarity with Cuban youth’.

During the Youth Work Seminar held at the Central School of the LJCCh, those present discussed education in political theory, youth contributions to rural revitalization and scientific-technological innovation.

Young people from China and Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited here, highlighted the contributions of the new generations to the links between the two regions.
