Comrade and great friend Raúl Castro Ruz
First Secretary of the CC of the CCP
President of the Councils of State and Ministers
The departure of the leader and great revolutionary, patriotic, nationalist and internationalist friend Fidel Castro is a loss for all the revolutionary and internationalist forces in the world, especially in South America and the Caribbean, in Africa and Asia.
Fidel, a symbol of struggle, of history, of ideas, of performances and initiatives for national liberation of the peoples and socialism, for development and social justice, of the present and of the future, will continue to be a force and a source of inspiration for the national liberation movements and revolutions and for democracy and socialism.
Our most sincere condolences go to you and to the Cuban people and State. We offer these condolences for the physical demise of the great Fidel also to ourselves and to our Palestinian people, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Arab peoples.
Cuba is present among the thousands of Palestinian and Arab cadres who studied in your universities. It is present in the performances at political, ideological and military levels alongside the Palestinian people for their rights to freedom, to self-determination, the return of refugees to their homes and the independent state within the borders prior to June 5 1967 with its capital, occupied Jerusalem, and in the defense of the rights of the Arab peoples for the liberation of the territories of the Sinai, the Golan Heights and South Lebanon.
Glory to the demised revolutionary, patriot and internationalist, comrade Fidel Castro!
Glory to Cuba, to its people and Revolution, its development, social justice and socialism!
Secretary-General of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine
