(TELESUR) – The South American nation also celebrates the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) anniversary.
“I send a strong embrace of solidarity to the dear people of Bolivar and Chavez on this new anniversary. Venezuela can always count on Cuba,” Diaz-Canel tweeted.
Venezuela’s independence put an end to Spanish colonial rule in the South American nation.
July 5, 1811, is considered one of the most important dates in the South American region. That was when Venezuela’s people created a constituent congress to break colonialism.
“Cuba and Venezuela are brothers in the fight against injustice. We will always defend the sovereignty of our peoples,” Diaz-Canel added.
