Czech Republic hearts Cubans

Is it any surprise that a country that was once under the yoke of communism would be supportive of those who want freedom for Cuba?

The Czech Republic will continue with its support to the Cuban opposition and observance of human rights across the world, Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg told representatives of Cuban opposition Hector Palacios and Gisela Delgado Friday.

Palacios said he hoped Cuba would become in one or two years a free country, to which the EU would contribute.

“The Czech Republic will insist in the future on its support to human rights in the whole world and in Cuba in particular. I hope that freedom and democracy will appear in Cuba through a concerted effort,” Schwarzenberg told journalists after meeting the Cuban dissidents.

It will, Mr. Schwarzenberg, thanks to help from great men like yourself.
