Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) — An opening ceremony of the month of international solidarity with the Korean people and a solidarity function were held in Cuba on June 22 and 26.
Juan Jose Leon Vega, chairman of the Cuban Committee for Supporting Korea’s Reunification, addressing the opening ceremony, said that the world witnessed the collapse of the U.S. imperialists’ policy of aggression through the Korean war and that the Cuban revolutionaries raided the Moncada Barracks around the time when Korea won victory and the miserable defeat of the U.S. began thereafter.
The Cuban people believe that the Korean people will achieve significant successes in socialist economic construction and in the struggle for the reunification of the country under the wise guidance of Kim Jong Il, true to the behests of President Kim Il Sung, he said.
After the opening ceremony, the participants saw Korean handicrafts on display.
Meanwhile, a solidarity function was held at the Havana Central Botanical Garden under the co-sponsorship of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples and the Cuban Committee for Supporting Korea’s Reunification. Cuban public figures and people, DPRK ambassador and embassy officials present at the function were briefed on the history of the garden, went round it and planted memorial trees.
The participants deepened friendly feelings, conversing about socialist construction and anti-imperialist struggle in the two countries.
