Paris - The Cuba Si France association today described revolutionary leader Fidel Castro (1926-2016) as an exemplary fighter at the service of his people and the world, four years after his physical disappearance.
In a statement to Prensa Latina, the solidarity organization created in 1991 affirmed that the statesman's legacy is imperishable because of his example of impeccable ethics, internationalism and peace.
'Four years ago a revolutionary of exceptional caliber left at the age of 90, Commander in Chief Fidel Castro, a demanding thinker, skillful strategist and great builder at the service of his people and the world, who will continue to be a true treasure for his people, all citizens of the world and future generations, 'he stressed.
