Love is the engine that drives Cuban revolutionaries.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel today stressed that the Revolution is the island's greatest work of love, on the occasion of the Day of Love and Friendship.

Havana, Cuba.- On the social network X, the president stressed that love is the engine that drives Cuban revolutionaries. #CubaEsAmor (#CubaIsLove), and from here we also extend it to our beloved Palestine, he wrote on the platform.

The president of the National Assembly of the People’s Power (parliament), Esteban Lazo, sent congratulations to the Caribbean nation and recalled Marti’s premise that ¨the only force and the only truth that exists in this life is love¨.

Patriotism is nothing but love, friendship is nothing but love’.

The President of the Council of State also congratulated the children’s company La Colmenita, which is celebrating its 34th anniversary.

According to popular chronicles, the date of February 14 was chosen as Love and Friendship Day almost all over the world because it marks the anniversary of the death of St. Valentine, a priest related to romantic love and confronted with the prohibition of marriage in the Middle Ages.

When he was a bishop, Valentine disrespected the orders of the emperor who banned marriages during wartime so that his soldiers could fight better and he continued to secretly unite passionate young men.

He was arrested and sentenced to death. (PL)
