Days of many emotions, victories and affection have been experienced by the Cuban delegation that accompanies the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, during these days of the 78th period of sessions of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
The success of all of them has also greatly influenced the constant and highly professional work carried out in this city by Cuban diplomats. To them, on Saturday night, the Head of State thanked and congratulated them, “if it had not been for you, the victory of these days would not have been possible,” he told them.
“For you all our recognition, congratulations and gratitude for the support you gave us at all times,” he assured them late this Saturday night, the last of this visit to the United Nations by the Cuban President.
I clearly remember the day we arrived, almost a week ago, recalled the dignitary, and then “we assured you that thanks to your work, Cuba was going to have a good performance in the United Nations General Assembly and a victory in the political sphere. and that has been achieved.”
The way in which Cuba’s voice was raised – he meant – in the general debate, and also in other parallel meetings, was something gratifying, as was having the opportunity to speak not only on behalf of our country, but also of the Group of 77 and China.
The work carried out these days at the United Nations, in addition to ratifying the success of the recently concluded Summit of Heads of State and Government of the G77 in Havana, constituted once again support for the fight of the Greater Antilles against the unjust blockade and the inclusion of the Island on the list of states supposedly sponsoring terrorism.
Díaz-Canel also commented on this to our diplomatic staff, with whom he also shared his satisfaction with the meetings held by the Cuban delegation with representatives of different sectors of American society, in which the ties were much more complemented.
“Once again Cuba is located in a top place in international relations and in a top place among the countries of the South, and that has also been thanks to you,” the Cuban President confirmed.
“Thank you, again, and congratulations.”
