Month of Solidarity with Cuban People Observed in DPRK
| Pyongyang, August 13 (KCNA) -- A meeting and film show took place at the Taedonggang Diplomatic Club here on Tuesday on the month of solidarity with the Cuban people.
Present there on invitation were German Hermin Ferras Alvarez, Cuban ambassador to the DPRK, and his embassy officials.
Present there were So Ho Won, vice-chairman of the Korean Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries who is vice-chairman of the Korean Committee for Solidarity with Cuba, officials concerned and others.
Speaking at the meeting, So Ho Won said that the first gunfire made by the Cuban revolutionaries and patriots in Moncada under the leadership of Fidel Castro Ruz marked a historic occasion in encouraging the Cuban people in the struggle for freedom and liberation.
The Cuban people have won victory by following the road of socialism despite the U.S. political and military pressure and moves for stifling Cuba economically and its subversive activities and sabotage, he noted.
The Korean people will as ever stand in the same trench with the fraternal Cuban people in the just struggle to beat back the U.S. imperialists' moves for aggression and intervention and defend socialism, he added.
The Cuban ambassador said that the international solidarity activities are of great significance now that the imperialists are becoming all the more pronounced in their counterrevolutionary offensive.
The friendly relations between the two countries have grown strong in the protracted and rigorous struggle against the U.S. imperialists, the common enemy, and become a model for the world people, he noted.
He expressed belief that Korean people would always win victory in the struggle to shatter the U.S. moves for stifling the DPRK, defend the sovereignty of the country and achieve national reunification.
At the end of the meeting its participants watched a Cuban feature film.
