President Raul Castro reiterates support to Saharawi people's struggle for independence

Havana, April 17, 2016 (SPS) - The President of the Republic of Cuba, Raul Castro Ruz, reiterated Saturday solidarity with the Saharawi people in the struggle against the occupation of their territory, the VII Congress of Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba.

Since its recognition of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), Cuba has defended over the years the right of the Saharawi people to self-determination on all international scenes.

Cuba has also provided education and training for thousands of Saharawi students in all fields of human knowledge despite the difficult economic conditions experienced by the Cuban people because of the economic blockade. (SPS)
