Buenos Aires, May 26 (Prensa Latina) Argentine President Alberto Fernandez on Thursday condemned the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, and highlighted the Caribbean island's resistance against aggressions.
In his speech at the 3rd Meeting of Ministers of Education of Latin America and the Caribbean at Palacio San Martin, in Buenos Aires, the president called on the international community to denounce and act against the US attacks on Cuba.
In our continent there is a country that has been blocked for six decades and survives as it can. How much longer will go by without us saying or doing something?” the head of State wondered.
On the other hand, he criticized that the North explodes bombs and disputes power while the South dies of misery, hunger and diseases.
Fernandez highlighted the importance of the event that brings together leaders from the entire region in this capital and advocated for the defense of education as a public service guaranteed by the State.
In addition, he noted the need for governments to guarantee access to education for all their citizens.
