Letter from Fidel to Alexis Tsipras, Prime Minister of Greece


Prime Minister of Greece:
Hon. Mr. Alexis Tsipras

I congratulate you warmly on his brilliant political victory, details of which were closely followed by the Telesur channel.

Greece is very familiar to Cubans. We were taught philosophy, art and science of antiquity when we studied in school, and with them, the most complex of all human activities: the art and science of politics.

Your country, especially its courage at this juncture, arouses admiration among Latin American and Caribbean peoples of this hemisphere to see how Greece, against external aggression, defend its identity and culture. Nor is it forgotten that a year after Hitler's attack on Poland, Mussolini ordered his troops to invade Greece, and that brave country rejected the attack and drove back the invaders, forcing the deployment of German armored units towards Greece, deviating from the initial target.

Cuba knows the value and fighting capacity of the Russian troops, which, together with the strength of  powerful ally the People's Republic of China, and other nations of the Middle East and Asia, always try to avoid war, but never allow any military aggression without overwhelming and devastating response.

In the current political situation in the world, where peace and the survival of our species hangs in the balance, every decision, more than ever, must be carefully developed and implemented, so that no one can doubt our honesty and seriousness with many of the most responsible and serious leadership struggling today to face the calamities that threaten the world.

We wish you, esteemed colleague Alexis Tsipras, the greatest success.


Fidel Castro Ruz July 5, 2015
