Speech delivered by H.E. Yuri Gala Lopez, Cuban Ambassador to Jamaica, at the Diplomatic Reception on the occasion of the 53rd Anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution.
I’d like to thank you all for joining us in celebrating the 53rd Anniversary of the Triumph of the Cuban Revolution, officially commemorated on January 1st.
In January 1959, the victory of the revolutionary forces allowed the Cuban people to attain true independence and sovereignty.
As a result of more than five decades of Revolution, and despite challenges including external aggressions of various kinds, Cuba is today a stable country, with a united, educated and healthy people convinced of the importance of globalizing solidarity to build a better world.
