On Saturday, May 21, the leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro Ruz, held a friendly meeting with compañero Evo Morales Ayma, president of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, at the end of his visit to Cuba.
Fidel and Evo recalled important moments in the ongoing process of regional integration, and highlighted the contribution of Hugo Chávez and Cristina Fernández de Kichner to the initiative. They also addressed the fraternal and growing collaboration ties between the two countries; discussed events currently occurring in Latin America and attempts by imperialist forces to destroy the socio-political movement in the hemisphere, whilst also warning of the grave threat such actions pose to humanity.
The warm and touching encounter served as another example of the shared vision of both leaders, and the genuine ties of friendship and cooperation which unite Cuba and Bolivia. (Excerpts from Cubadebate)
