Raul Castro
Cuba's First Vice President, Army General Raul Castro Ruz emphasized this Saturday that Cuba is willing to negotiate the longstanding dispute between the U.S and Cuba, as long as that negotiation is based on "the principles of equality, reciprocity, non-interference and mutual respect."

"Our condition as a country is that we will not tolerate any our blemishes on its independence," he said at the political ceremony and military parade commemorating the 50th anniversary of the landing of the yacht Granma and Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces Day.

Raul Castro, also Cuban Defense Minister, said that after nearly half a century Cuba is willing to wait patiently for the moment at which common sense prevails in Washington's circles of power.

The Cuban VP made it clear that in the meantime the country will continue consolidating its military invulnerability based on the strategy of a 'War of all the People', which was designed and structured twenty five years ago.

"This type of popular war, as repeatedly proven throughout modern history, is simply invincible," he stressed.

Attending the ceremony held in the Revolution Square were Presidents Evo Morales, of Bolivia, Rene Preval, of Haiti and Daniel Ortega, president-elect of Nicaragua. Also present were the Prime Minister of San Vincent and the Grenadines Ralph E. Gonsalves, and other national and world personalities.

More than 300,000 Cuban representing the whole country participated in the ceremony, which was dedicated to the 80th birthday of the Cuban President Fidel Castro.
