Central Committee of the Gongolese Workers Party, Military Committee,

During our stay in Tanzania, we have received with deep grief the tragic
news of the death of President Marien Ngouabi, outstanding African figure,
a fighter for the cause of peoples against imperialism, colonialism and
neocolonialism who, during the hard days of the heroic struggle of the
Angolan people, demonstrated his solidary and internationalist spirit.

In expressing the condolences of the Cuban people and communist part to the
people, government and party of the People's Republic of the Congo, we
also assert our conviction that the revolutionaries of the Congo will
defend the independence of their fatherland with their revolutionary unity
and firmness.

[Signed] Fidel Castro Ruz, first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba
