Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel called on Tuesday for the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade the United States government has maintained against the Caribbean nation for almost six decades.

Now, almost 150 years after the first Constitution was enacted in Cuba, the Cubans are playing one of the most important challenges for the Revolution: participating at a Constitutional Reform that reflects the economic, political and social transformations that have occurred in the country in recent years.

Addressing Cubans resident in the United States, during his visit to New York last month, President Miguel Díaz-Canel emphasized that émigrés around the world make a decisive contribution supporting the nation’s struggle and interests.

Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, President of the Councils of State and Ministers of Cuba, sent a letter of congratulations to the bank workers of the country, on the occasion of commemorating this October 13th their day and the 58th anniversary of the nationalization of the Cuban banking system.
