China Daily (USA) - - FRONT PAGE -

“Pres­i­dent Fidel Castro will be re­mem­bered for his lead­er­ship of the Cuban rev­o­lu­tion and for ad­vances in Cuba in the fields of ed­u­ca­tion, lit­er­acy and health. His rev­o­lu­tion­ary ideals left few in­dif­fer­ent. He was a strong voice for so­cial jus­tice in global dis­cus­sions at the UN Gen­eral Assem­bly and in­ter­na­tional and re­gional fo­rums.” State­ment from spokesman for United Na­tions Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral Ban Ki-moon “The name of this re­mark­able states­man is right­fully viewed as a sym­bol of a whole era in modern his­tory. A free and in­de­pen­dent Cuba built by him and his fel­low rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies has be­come an in­flu­en­tial mem­ber of the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity and serves as an in­spir­ing ex­am­ple for many coun­tries and peoples.” Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin in ames­sage of con­do­lence sent to Cuban leader Raul Castro “To­day, we of­fer con­do­lences to Fidel Castro’s fam­ily, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban peo­ple.” United States Pres­i­dent Barack Obama in a state­ment

Com­rade Fidel Castro is a great fig­ure of our times and will be re­mem­bered by his­tory and the peo­ple.” Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping in a mes­sage of con­do­lence sent to Cuban leader Raul Castro
