That would only lead to the implementation of aggressive measures that would harm the sections of the population with fewer resources and destroy the unity and confidence of the majority of citizens around the Revolution and the Party, he noted.

In Cuba, no one will be homeless, he added in front of before more than 1,000 people including delegates and guests.
