Assad: The Name “Fidel Castro” Will Forever Be Remembered by the Generations

BEIRUT – The name of Fidel Castro will remain forever in the minds of the generations, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Saturday following the death of the Cuban leader.

The embattled Assad sent a telegram to current Cuban president Raul Castro in which he expressed his profound condolences for the loss of former Communist revolutionary Fidel Castro.

“Our friend Cuba, with its resolved leadership, was able to face the largest sanctions and unjust campaigns witnessed in recent history,” the message said.

For this, it became a beacon of freedom for the people of Latin America, the Arab leader said.

Assad described Castro as someone who led the Cuban people in the fight against imperialism for decades, adding that his determination inspired leaders and people around the world.

Assad is currently fighting a war in his own country, Syria, where for over five years myriad rebel groups have battled with the government in an attempt to seize power in the nation.

Castro died Friday night at the age of 90. The news was announced in an address on state television shortly thereafter by the leader’s brother, Raul Castro.
