Fidel continuing to recover, affirms Foreign Minister Felipe Pérez Roque
“We shall defeat the U.S. blockade and we shall achieve a future of peace and hope for Cuba,” affirmed Foreign Minister Felipe Pérez Roque, speaking to residents in the Luyanó Moderno People’s Council in San Miguel del Padron, Havana, in what was the first of more than 1,000 neighborhood debates conceived as part of the national reflection event against the blockade and Bush’s annexationist plan.
Pérez Roque began the presentation by noting that President Fidel Castro is continuing to recover and that “we will have him once again heading the Revolution.”
In the presence of Pedro Sáez, member of the Political Bureau and first secretary of the Party in the capital, more than 1,000 residents congregated in the Raúl Roa García contingent working areas for the exchange.
政治局成员、首府党委会第一书记佩德罗·塞茨出席会议，1000多居民聚集在Raúl Roa García代表团工作区参加了讨论。
The foreign minister predicted that the overwhelming support of the international community at the UN for the immediate lifting of the inhuman actions of the superpower will again be evident this year.
He observed that the Cuban Revolution could have built thousands of homes and attended to other urgent needs of the population with all the money that the blockade has cost and gave the example that $100 million would have covered all the housing requirements in San Miguel del Padrón（圣米格尔-德尔帕德龙）.
He stated that Washington’s economic war on Havana affects all aspects of national life, and even prevented the Cuban child Raydel Sosa Rojas from receiving a camera won in a competition organized by the United Nations, given that it contains U.S. components.
他说华盛顿对哈瓦那的经济战在各个方面对居民生活产生了影响，甚至连参加联合国组织的竞赛并获奖的古巴儿童Raydel Sosa Rojas由于相机部件是美国生产的，而不能赢得那只相机。
