Legislators of Cuba and Bolivia met in Havana
Alarcon noted that the Andean nation is one of the countries that have faced a long history of very serious challenges to obtain their inalienable right to full independence, development and justice. He said that with the greatest respect for the sovereign decisions of Bolivians, "you, dear friends, can always count on Cuba."
Alarcon spoke about a resolution passed by the Bolivian parliament condemning the freedom granted to international terrorist Luis Posada Carriles in the United States, and another demanding that Washington release the Cuban Five, unjustly imprisoned for more than nine years for trying to prevent terrorist attacks against their country.
Jorge Gonzalez Perez, president of the Cuba-Bolivia Friendship Group, said the main objective of the meeting is to strengthen bilateral ties between the two nations.
The Bolivian delegation in Havana includes senators and representatives of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS), Democratic and Social Power (PODEMOS) and the United National Front (UN).
