According to the Prensa Latina in his speech at an international seminar in Mexico, the Head of the International Relations Department of the Communist Party of Cuba (CPC) Jose Ramon Balaguer, stressed their fidelity to socialism. Balaguer is reported to have said "Cuba will never give up Socialism".
At the start of his speech, after stating Cuba's support to the Bolivarian Revolution and the Government of President Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela, he urged political and social forces to join hands to resist the adverse current situation and "march united in this emancipation effort." Balaguer denounced "the so-called free trade agreements, which constitute instruments of political domination and impose harmful conditions on Third World Countries".
Regarding the US blockade, which remains intact despite the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries, Balaguer stressed that Cuba will insist on "the end of the US blockade, the devolution of the territory usurped by the US naval base of Guantanamo and the compensation for damages caused by the US aggressive policy are Cuban people's claims".
