forces, and to the entire fraternal people of Portugal, our best feelings
of solidarity in the just struggle for national transformations and for

Further on, our prime minister, Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro tells the
Portuguese premier: With sympathy, we greet the victories attained against

are increasingly greater, and at the same time we hope for strengthened and
expanded ties of friendship and cooperation between our respective peoples
