Remarks by Miguel M. Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, President of the Councils of State and Ministers, on receiving the Order of the Liberators of Venezuela, Caracas, May 30, 2018, “Year 60 of the Revolution”

(Council of State transcript / GI translation)

COMPAÑERO Nicolás Maduro Moros, President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela;

Members of the delegations of Venezuela and Cuba:

With pride and reverence I begin to speak, as Martí said. I do so aware that, having been judged worthy of the Order of the Liberators of Venezuela, it is to Cuba, to Cuban men and women, to whom this immense honor is conferred.

I humbly receive it, on behalf of a heroic and noble people, and I interpret this as an act of undeserved generosity toward myself, and of just recognition to the Cuban people, who have followed, through glorious pages of sacrifice the preaching of Bolívar and Martí to make the dreams of independence and liberty of these heroes a reality.

It was Bolívar who envisaged from that distant era the threat posed by U.S. imperialism to genuine Latin American and Caribbean integration, which still has a long way to go to materialize, but which merits all our efforts.

Compañera Delcy Rodríguez, President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela’s National Constituent Assembly;

Compañero Tareck El Aissami, Executive Vice President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela;

Distinguished guests;

Dear Venezuelan people;

Cuban compatriots:

It is an honor to speak before members of the National Constituent Assembly, and I convey, in the name of Cuba, our respect and great admiration.

(Applause)

I bring a strong embrace from Army General Raúl Castro Ruz (Applause), who has expressed his admiration for the popular victory won last Sunday, May 20, that was resounding. (Applause) And this is precisely the reason for our visit to sister Venezuela.

Personally, we feel much support – and that is what we expressed to President Maduro – when just two days after the National Assembly of People’s Power in our country was held, when we took on the responsibility with which today we represent the Cuban people, the warm solidarity of Venezuela arrived right away, that of its people, the Bolivarian Revolution, and Maduro, with a delegation of figures from the Venezuelan government to visit our country – the first to visit following this National Assembly (Applause). We saw and appreciated this tremendous expression of support, of solidarity, of brotherhood, of friendship.
