The Cuban Revolution of 1959 was the world´s most comprehensive because it had repercussions in the political, economic, social, and cultural fields, said Father Miguel d’Escoto.During a mass of solidarity with Cuba at La Merced church in Larreynaga neigborhood, in this capital, the former Nicaraguan Foreign minister highlighted the solidarity of the Cuban people and government, and said that they often wish to travel to that country for the good of their spiritual health.
The president of the 63th session of the UN General Assembly in 2008 and 2009, expressed concern about the scientists warning on the escalating global warming that will faster wipe out life in the planet, and the most developed nations passive behaviour to face up that reality.
In the recent Summit held in South Africa, the United States decided that world nations should forget about climate change and focus of solving the economy crisis during the next 10 years, and nobody, except the third world countries, rejected the US statements, said d’Escoto.
For his part, father Antonio Castro, who officiated at the mass, welcome the 53rd anniversary of the Cuban Revolution to be marked on January 1, 2012, and recalled that Cuba was the first country who offered aid to his country after the devastating earthquake of 1972.
