HAVANA, Cuba, Mar 12 (acn) Laura Imelda Perez, president of the Mexico-Cuba Friendship Group, reiterated the condemnation of the economic, commercial and financial blockade of United States against the Caribbean island.
Perez told Prensa Latina news agency that the legislative group approved a program that will focus on strengthening work in the political, economic, cultural and academic spheres.
She pointed out that the main task of the group will be to make a statement, as every year, regarding the commercial blockade against Cuba, which is a sign of solidarity.
For this purpose, they will organize forums dealing with the relations between both nations, the ties that unite them and the prosperous future and will also promote the creation of initiatives and mechanisms for the eradication of illiteracy through the model ¨Yo si puedo¨ (Yes I can), together with the Cuban Ministry of Education.
They also intend sending volunteer brigades to Cuba, holding exchange of good practices and experiences among legislators on programs in the agri-food industry and academic exchanges.
It is planned to carry out the Cuban Culture Day, with gastronomic, musical, artistic, and cinematographic exhibitions, as well as the commemoration of the arrival of Jose Marti in Mexico.
