Rodriguez thanked the 219 delegates of political groups, civic organizations, and unions for their solidarity.
The Minister said that through your struggle, you encourage the creative, persistent, and victorious resistance of the Cuban people in the midst of enormous difficulties.
The Cuban government estimates that the US-led trade embargo against Cuba has cost the Caribbean island over $150 billion over the years, which is why Rodriguez denounced the intensification of the US-led trade embargo against Cuba.
The International Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba began on Saturday and ended on Monday following a two-year suspension due to COVID-19.
