Fidel Castro’s death is a chance to “move forward in peace”

TODAY CUBA – Venezuelan opposition alliance Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) stressed in a communiqué that following Fidel Castro’s death, both Cuba and Venezuela “now see the possibility to move forward in peace, restoring the political, economic and social rights their respective governments have denied to them”

Last Sunday, MUD described Fidel Castro’s death as a chance “to move forward in peace” both for Cuba and Venezuela.

“Both peoples now see the possibility to move forward in peace, restoring the political, economic and social rights their respective governments have denied to them,” MUD pointed up in a communiqué.

The communiqué came one day after homages paid to the Cuban leader headed by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, who then would decree three days of national mourning, AFP reported.

The Venezuelan late President Hugo Chávez—Maduro’s mentor—viewed Castro as a political “father.”

During his administration (1999-2013), Chávez built up a close alliance between Caracas and Havana, an initiative still followed by the country’s acting president Maduro.
