Esteemed Fidel Castro Ruz:
On the occasion of the closing of the 6th Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba, allow me to convey, in the name of the Communist Party of China’s Central Committee, and my own, our most sincere respect and cordial greetings.
The 6th Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba, held on the 50th anniversary of the proclamation of the socialist nature of the Cuban Revolution, has been a Congress worthy of its legacy and looking to the future. Over the past 50 years, as founder and promoter of the Revolution and the development of Cuba, you, with no fear of foreign pressure, have led the Cuban people in protecting the sovereignty and dignity of the nation, persevering resolutely along the path to socialism, registering successes in the construction of socialism which have attracted the attention of everyone. You have, therefore, garnered not only the respect and support of the Cuban people, but also the admiration of the world’s peoples.
