The leader said that the triumph of the Revolution in Cuba on January 1st, 1959, was a turning point in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean and a break with the traditional social and economic conditions of the region.
“Perhaps only the independence struggles of the 19th century could be compared with the Cuban Revolution. Which country of our region could resist only three months of a blockade by the United States?” Correa asked.
After recalling that Cuba has resisted for 50 years, he predicted that the Caribbean nation will be one of the most prosperous countries of Latin America and the Caribbean once the blockade is lifted due to its human talent, its technological development and the social cohesion of the nation.
