Ecuador's Correa Extols Bolivar

Quito, July 25 (Prensa Latina) Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa highlighted the correlation between the ideals of Simon Bolivar in the 19th century and the people's revolution of the 21st century which, he said, is being encouraged in his country.

Speaking at the solemn session in Guayaquil for the 224th birth anniversary of the Liberator, Correa stressed that his government will take no step backward on its course, and will not give in to oligarchic pressures.

The president expressed his devotion to Bolivarian thought, and pointed out the socialism of the 21st century is meant to become the most advanced expression of human thought.

Correa also highlighted that when he assumed the presidency on January 15, he committed to fight for a different future "for the people, who understand the profound exercise of our sovereignty, with Bolivar's ideal as the central core."
