Díaz-Canel emphasized the need to make more and better political communication.

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Sunday assured that in every place where there is a choice media project to the hegemonic dictates of the West, there is an active Operation Truth.

Havana, Cuba.- On the opening day of the New Operation Truth Forum held in Havana, organized by Prensa Latina News Agency, the Cuban leader thanked participants from over 30 nations for their attendance at the event.

Díaz-Canel stressed that celebrating this forum is of special significance because it takes up the original Operation Truth, conducted in 1959 at the call of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, to refute the smear campaigns against the newly-formed social project.

Plus, he said, because the meeting is being called by the prestigious Prensa Latina, which has accompanied the Cuban government for 65 years.

“Welcome to Havana, comrades in arms,” Díaz-Canel said.

He expressed his gratitude because in these alternative trenches, the voice of Cuba is heard loudly and the inclusion of Cuba in the unilateral States Sponsor of Terrorism (SSOT) list, the tightening of the US blockade, and the disinformation campaigns are being fought.

Operation Truth, he said, is a challenge in these times of media terrorism and defamation.

Díaz-Canel emphasized the need to make more and better political communication so that the people and the world understand the socio-economic transformations implemented by the country on the road to a more prosperous and just society. (PL)
