The inclusion of Fincimex on the U.S. State Department’s list of restricted Cuban entities last June, as well as the Treasury Department’s modifications to regulations for the control of Cuban assets announced on Friday, October 23, will prevent remittances to Cuba through U.S. companies with general licenses, directly harming the Cuban people and their relatives in the United States.
This move, amidst a brutal pandemic, corroborates the U.S. government’s cynicism, opportunism and contempt for the Cuban people.
Speech by Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, President of the Republic of Cuba, at the closing of the Fifth Ordinary Period of Sessions of the National Assembly of People's Power’s Ninth Legislature, at the Convention Center, October 28, 2020, Year 62 of the Revolution
(Transcript: Presidency of the Republic/Translation: GI)
Dear Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee
Compañero Esteban Lazo Hernández, President of the National Assembly of People's Power and the Council of State
Camilo Cienfuegos was stolen from us forever, October 28, 1959, but he left us the hero and the memories, already etched in the essence of the Revolution, the one to whom we can say today: Cuba is doing well, Camilo!
There is a man of the people that the homeland will never let die, because he left an eternal footprint everywhere he went. A man who lives on in his example.
He won the affection of a nation with his personal sacrifice, simplicity, his smile, and impeccable character forged in the Sierra and during a few months of Revolution following the victory.
Cuba, with a delegation led by President Miguel Díaz-Canel, will participate today, through the 28th, in the 38th Session of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), held for the first time online, due to the current health emergency, according to the Cuban Foreign Ministry’s website.
Díaz-Canel will formally present the pro tempore Presidency of ECLAC to the government of Costa Rica, completing Cuba’s two-year term in the position, which began in May of 2018, when the 37th Session took place in Havana.
