Díaz-Canel: We are ready and willing to do everything to defend what is most sacred, what unites us

HAVANA, Cuba, Oct 25 (ACN) Cuban News Agency noew reproduces the full text of the speech delivered by the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic Miguel Diaz-Canel at the closing ceremony of the Second Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, at the Convention Palace, on October 24, 2021.

(Shorthand Versions - Presidency of the Republic)

Dear Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, leader of the Cuban Revolution;

Reason Is Our Shield

Dignity, resilience and unity are our greatest strengths in the face of the dishonest and mean annexationist action that serves the interests of the historical enemy of the Cuban nation in its attempt to fragment and divide us to defeat us.

After tough months of pandemic, harsh global economic crisis and a tightened and sustained blockade  –that has ostensibly affected our people-, Cuba has started to revive its social life, public places and services, schools, tourism and other sectors of the economy.

We are already the country of the Americas with the highest percentage of citizens receiving at least one dose of the anti COVID-19 vaccines; the one with the highest daily vaccination rate in the world and the only one able to develop a massive vaccination campaign among children from age 2.  All of that has been possible due to our country’s capability to produce its own vaccines, as a result of the scientific policy designed and promoted by Fidel and the talent of men and women trained by the Revolution.

We are getting back on our feet through our own efforts, thanks to the indomitable spirit, dignity and resilience of our people; with the serene and firm steering by the country’s leadership; with the spirit of victory and creativity that has been forged after many years of harsh battles.

Those who have bet on the failure of Socialism in Cuba and thought that July 11 was the final blow dealt to the Revolution are now disappointed and speeding up their plans. They attempt to prevent any possibility of wellbeing, individual and collective development, civil order and peace in our Homeland.
