Havana, Jul 17 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro highlighted today the legacy of Fidel Castro's resistance and struggle at the 24th Meeting of Sao Paulo Forum.
In a plenary session devoted to the thought of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, during the last day of the three-day meeting, the President pointed out Fidel's commitment to unity and the defense of social justice and the dignity of the people.
At Havana's Conventions Center, Maduro also mentioned the example of the Cuban leader (1926-2016) as a creator and promoter of projects marked by justice, democracy and dignity, regardless of what those processes are called.
During his speech, the Venezuelan leader addressed the situation in his country, subjected to internal and external aggression, with the United States government as a protagonist, a crusade that includes the danger of a military aggression.
We have resisted the violence and the attacks of the most powerful empire, said Maduro, who recalled the interest of the powers, and in particular of Washington, in seizing the great resources of the South American country, including oil and gold.
