Havana, Dec 25. -The Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) thanked many nations of the world for their longstanding and consistent solidarity and support.
On behalf of the organization, its vice president, Enrique Roman, expressed the gratitude of all those friends who have backed the 50 years of work of that institution.
"Without the help of all our friends, it would have been impossible to fight to end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade the United States has imposed on Cuba for more than 50 years," he said.
"Cuba's circle of friends, comprised of the diplomatic corps accredited in Havana, representatives of political parties, organizations and foreign students, also contribute to our fight to free the five Cuban antiterrorists imprisoned in the United States since 1998," he said.
The 50th anniversary of ICAP is a collection of all the actions that have been carried out seeking closer ties among the peoples of the world and the desire for values such as justice and equality to prevail in the international order, Roman said.
