Prensa Latina reported that, according to the announcement of the organizations, the meeting will focus on consolidating concrete actions to fight the US economic, financial and commercial blockade against the island.

The event will also give a boost to the solidarity campaign for the release of the Cuban Five: Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez, who have been imprisoned in American jails since 1998 for trying to prevent criminal actions planned and conducted by Miami-based extreme right groups.

Meanwhile, in Jartum, Sudan’s President Omar Hassan Al-Bashir extolled the resistance of the Cuban people to Washington’s hostile policy towards their country and recognized the social achievements in health and education matters.

Al Bashir made the statements as he officially welcomed the new Cuban ambassador to his country, Otto Vaillant Frias. Sudan’s leader said his country is open to establish cooperation agreements with the island in several sectors.
