Havana, Cuba, Nov 2.- Bolivian president Evo Morales attended a ceremony for the presentation in his country of the book “From Sierra Maestra to Santiago de Cuba. The Strategic Counteroffensive,” by Fidel Castro.
Speaking at the event, Morales said he agreed with Cuban Revolution leader, Fidel Castro Ruz, in that today’s problems must be fought in a different way than they used to be faced given current historical conditions.
"Today we have to make the democratic revolution without weapons with the unity of the people and for the benefit of the people,” said Morales.
Morales extolled the Cuban victory in the vote against the American economic, financial and commercial blockade held October 26 by the UN General Assembly, reported Prensa Latina newspaper.
“Only two countries voted against the resolution: United States and Israel. The whole world voted in favor of the end of the blockade,” said Morales.
The Bolivian president said Fidel Castro should be appointed UN secretary general and he questioned the feasibility of the forum as he considered it doesn’t respect the resolutions passed by its member nations.
The launching ceremony took place at the Palacio Quemado –government headquarters- in the presence of Cuban Commander of the Revolution Guillermo Garcia Frias.
During his stay in Bolivia, Garcia Frias met with members of a brigade of Cuban doctors working in hospitals of the city of El Alto. (ACN).
