Dear Comrade Joao Amazonas,

Dear Comrade delegates,

It is a special joy for me to send to your Congress, to all the militants and supporters of the fraternal Communist Party of Brazil, the warmest greetings on behalf of the Party of Labour of Albania, the Albanian people and of me personally, and from my heart to wish this great assembly complete success.

Your Congress, which is being convened in the jubilee year of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of Brazil and the 20th anniversary of its reorganization in struggle against revisionist betrayal, opens a new period of struggle and victories for the fraternal Party of Brazil.

The Brazilian proletariat has found in the Communist Party of Brazil its revolutionary vanguard and the ardent defender of its interests, a Party which has been able to implement the teachings of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin with unswerving loyalty and in a creative spirit, in compliance with the conditions of the country and the situations in the world. Heroically overcoming many difficulties, this Party has held aloft and further developed the outstanding militant traditions of the working class and the broad working masses of Brazil in their class battles against the local oligarchy and reaction, against foreign monopolies, against American imperialism and its policy of expansion and intervention, for their legitimate rights, for national sovereignty and social emancipation.

The Communist Party of Brazil has made and is making a valuable contribution to the historical struggle in defence of the purity of our revolutionary doctrine, against modern revisionism of all hues, for the defence and constant strengthening of the unity of the international Marxist-Leninist communist movement. The struggle the Brazilian proletariat and people under the leadership of the Communist Party of Brazil is an important component part of the great world revolutionary process of our time. It constitutes a valuable contribution to the struggle of the world working class, the working masses and freedom-loving peoples against imperialism, American imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism, in the first place. Between the Party of Labour of Albania and the Communist Party of Brazil close ties and a great militant friendship based on Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism have been established in this common struggle.

We express our profound conviction that the fraternal Communist Party of Brazil, led by our beloved Comrade Joao Amazonas, will achieve major successes and victories in its struggle and efforts for the union and organization of the people in a broad common front, in an independent political movement of the popular front, for the achievement of political freedoms and the establishment of a popular regime, for the overthrow of the imperialist rule in the country, for its independent development and the setting out of the country on a new road, for the triumph of the cause of socialism.

The Party of Labour of Albania backs up and supports whole-heartedly the just and heroic struggle of the Communist Party of Brazil and wishes it still greater victories on its glorious road.

In sending our revolutionary greetings to your Congress, we wish the further strengthening of collaboration, friendship and fraternal relations between our two fraternal parties for the good of our common cause — Marxism-Leninism.

Long live the Communist Party of Brazil!

Long live the militant friendship between the Communist Party of Brazil and the Party of Labour of Albania!

Glory to Marxism-Leninism!


First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Party of Labour of Albania
