Nicaraguan Army Chief Highlights Influence of Cuban Revolution

Nicaragua's army chief, Julio Cesar Aviles, called the Cuban victory at Playa Giron (Bay of Pigs) against the mercenary invasion in 1961, "a moralizing and determinant element" of the revolution in that country and an example for the Latin American nations.

On the 51st anniversary of that event on April 19, the Army General and other senior officers from this Central American nation and Venezuela attended a ceremony organized by the Cuban Embassy in Managua.

There, in Giron, the scenery of the fighting against the invaders, was the Nicaraguan people washing the offense of the Somoza‚�÷s dictatorship that lent the territory of our country for the mercenary invasion, Aviles recalled.

Among those killed was Nicaraguan Commander Carlos Ulloa, who piloted a plane from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Cuba, a valuable internationalist contribution, according to those attending the meeting, among whom was the son of the outstanding fighter.

April, but in 2012, meant again a Giron for Latin America and the Caribbean, said Cuban Ambassador Eduardo Martinez Borbonet, referring to the position taken by the countries of the region in the recent summit in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.

In the so-called Summit of the Americas, imperialism received another defeat after failing in the attempt to ignore the Cuba issu and the fair demand from Argentina over the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands, noted the Cuban diplomat.
