Reagan called for a response and counter attacks against Cuba, and for the UK government to act against US extraterritorial laws that prevent British banks from making money transfers to the island, or Cuban companies from investing here.
Cuba is going through difficult times, so our solidarity is now more necessary than ever, the Secretary General of the CSC emphasized, after noting that after the victory of the Revolution, Moncada and other military barracks were turned into schools.
