African Union Calls on US to Return Guantanamo Bay to Cuba

ADDIS ABABA The chairperson of the African Union Commission asked the United States on Monday to return Guantanamo Bay naval base to Cuba, and to end the embargo on the island.

Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma made this appeal in one of her last speeches as the African Union leader during the annual summit held at the organizations headquarters in Addis Ababa, where heads of state and governments from across the continent will elect her successor.

Dlamini-Zuma recalled the legacy of former Cuban President Fidel Castro, who died last November, for his role in the fight against colonialism and imperialism in Africa, which the Cuban regime supported militarily and with educational and health initiatives.

She stressed that the greatest tribute to be paid to Castro is to continue the friendship and solidarity with the Cuban people.

The South African politician expressed her willingness to fight for the total lifting of the economic embargo and the return of Guantanamo Bay to Cuba.

During the process of normalization of bilateral relations between the United States and Cuba, the island has insisted on reclaiming the territory occupied by the US naval base since 1898, when the United States took control of the island after defeating Spain in the Spanish-American War.
