Havana, September 26 (RHC)-- Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel today highlighted the validity of historic leader Fidel Castro's speech to the UN 60 years ago.

On Twitter, the President emphasized that the Cuban Revolution made history with those words at the United Nations.

Díaz-Canel quoted Fidel when he said: 'This is our opportunity to tell the truth, and we will not stop telling it.'

According to the President, Cuba will always speak to the world according to that principle. On September 26, 1960, Sixty years ago, then-Cuban Prime Minister spoke for the first time before the largest UN body and his speech, which lasted almost five hours, is among the longest ever delivered there.

Moreover, it is one of the most critical and harshest against the philosophy of war and dispossession.

The condemnation of numerous actions by the US government against the Cuban Revolution and the use of force amid the growing arms race were the central arguments of that speech, which provoked repeated ovations and applause.

Fidel Castro arrived in New York City shortly after the triumph of the Revolution on the Caribbean island in January 1959. That raised the US government's animosity, which imposed numerous restrictions on him and offered him disrespectful treatment.

60 yrs of that historic speech by #Fidel at the #UnitedNations, where he made it clear that: "This is our chance to tell the truth and we shall tell it". #Cuba will always speak to the world under that principle. #SomosCuba #SomosContinuidad
