Carlos Zamora also noted that the statement regarding the situation in Venezuela presented during a National Assembly extraordinary session in June, reflected the feelings of the Cuban people.

(Cuban) people," he noted.

Meanwhile, deputies also discussed the current situation in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the correlation of forces in the hemisphere and the situation facing progressive governments of the region, noted the official.
