La Serena, Chile, Nov 28 (RHC) Solidarity with Cuba today is more necessary than ever in the face of the U.S. blockade and the complexities generated by Covid-19 and the war in Europe said Chilean Senator Daniel Nuñez.

The parliamentarian recalled the close relations between the two countries from the very moment of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution.

The ties between the two peoples became much deeper during the dictatorship (1973-1990) when the Cuban government received many Chileans and also supported the return to democracy, he told Prensa Latina.

As another important moment, the Communist Party senator mentioned the creation of the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM), from which many young people from all over the world graduated including hundreds of Chileans.

Thanks to internationalism, Cuba trained doctors to work in public health and thus contributed to improve and healing many patients in Latin America, he said.

The parliamentarian for Coquimbo participated in the inauguration of the 27th National Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba, which took place this weekend in this region of the so-called Norte Chico region of Chile.

The final declaration of the meeting called for strengthening the struggle against the economic, commercial, and financial siege imposed by the United States on the Caribbean country for more than 60 years.

The Chilean solidarity movement sent syringes and other medical supplies to the island for vaccination against Covid-19.

It also made a monetary contribution that was used for mattresses and other items for the victims of Hurricane Ian in western Cuba.

Only in the first 14 months of the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden, the damages caused to Cuba by the U.S. economic blockade amount to six thousand 364 million dollars. (Source: PL)
