BEIRUT: A Hezbollah delegation visited Cuba and Venezuela last week and met with a number of parliamentarians and officials, the party’s press office said Wednesday.

The visit came in response to an official invitation by the head of International Relations Division of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party, José Ramon Balaguer.

At one point, the delegation, which comprised Loyalty to the Resistance Party MP Nawwar Sahili and head of Hezbollah’s International Relations Department Ammar Musawi, visited the Santa Clara tomb of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the Argentinean Marxist revolutionary icon, where they laid a wreath.

Musawi was quoted by the Hezbollah press office as having praised the “Cuban experience in resisting American hegemony,” which he held up as “a model for all countries and peoples in how to challenge policies of hegemony, arrogance and plunder.”

The Hezbollah official also commended Cuba's historical stances in defending the Arabs’ rights in their conflict with the "Zionist enemy" and the country’s support for the Palestinian cause.

He also participated in the Sao Paolo gathering for international leftist parties and forces in Caracas, Venezuela, on July 3 and 4, in which many issues of international concern were discussed.

Musawi met with several participants, including Venezuelan Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs David Velasquez, with whom the Hezbollah MP discussed his party's view of regional development and what he described as the “vicious attack on Syria.”
