French politicians highlight Cuba and its Revolution

HAVANA: The example of Cuba in its 50 years of Revolution was highlighted in Paris by French politicians, who described as absurd the traces of the cold war maintained by the United States with its economic blockade against the archipelago.

Parliamentarian from Martinique, Alfred Almont, from the ruling Union for a Popular Movement (UMP), told the Prensa Latina news agency that, for the entire Caribbean, Cuba is an extraordinary example of how to build the future of a small country.

Almont, president of the France-Cuba Friendship Group at the French National Assembly, recalled that during his recent visit to Havana he could see for himself the joint and harmonic efforts of the archipelago’s government and people.

For his part, parliamentarian André Chassaigne, president of the Association of Elected Communists of France, considered that Cubans show a broad diversity of advances in education, health, and in the scientific and cultural fields.

Likewise, ex-foreign minister and French parliamentarian Jack Lang was of the opinion that a new page of history should be opened for Cuba, without the economic blockade and on the basis of cooperation and respectful dialogue.

Lang stressed that the US economic blockade against the archipelago is unacceptable, absurd and intolerable.

Jean-Pierre Bel, president of the Senate’s socialist group, and Bernard Piras, permanent senator of the France-Caribbean Friendship Association, expressed the same opinion.
