Fidel and Raúl send fraternal greetings to new Salvadoran President

The historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, sent a fraternal greeting to the Salvadoran people on the occasion of the inauguration of the country’s new president, in a ceremony held June 1.

Salvador Valdés Mesa, a Cuban vice president, conveyed the message to president-elect Salvador Sánchez Cerén, during a ceremony held in San Salvador’s Civic Plaza.

Valdés Mesa likewise conveyed greetings from Raúl Castro, president of the Councils of State and Ministers, and the Cuban people who he said, “have always been, and will always be, at the side of the noble and heroic Salvadoran people,” emphasizing the friendship and historic ties which unite the two nations.

Valdés Mesa recalled the decision made by the country’s previous president, Mauricio Funes, to reestablish diplomatic relations with Cuba, June 1, 2009, as his administration’s first official act.

He commented that El Salvador has joined international condemnations of the U.S. blockade of Cuba, imposed more than 50 years ago, which has caused human suffering and limits the country’s development.

Valdés Mesa thanked Sánchez Cerén and the Salvadoran people for the solidarity shown in support of efforts to win the release of the Cuban Five, three of whom remain unjustly imprisoned in the United States.

 He wished Sánchez Cerén success during his five-year administration and reiterated Cuba’s support, saying that El Salvador can always count on Cuba to share what the country has, despite its limited resources, emphasizing, “The Cuban Revolution will never fail El Salvador.” (PL)
