HAVANA (Reuters) – Cuban Communist Party Leader Raul Castro said on Wednesday Cuba would never abandon its solidarity with its leftist ally Venezuela or give into U.S. blackmail over its support.

“The Venezuelan and Chavista government is writing admirable pages of resistance,” he told the national assembly, meeting to enact the new constitution.
