Wellington, April 25th, 2019. Cuban Ambassador Mario Alzugaray Rodríguez took part in the National Commemoration Ceremony for ANZAC Day, which was presided by Governor General, Dame Patsy Reddy and Finance Minister Grant Robertson.
This year's commemorations have been marked by the impact of recent terrorist attacks on Christchurch, from which Kiwi leaders have emphasized the messages of unity and effort to reach a more inclusive and kind society.
The Cuban diplomat, along with members of the diplomatic corps, laid a wreath at the Pukeahu National War Memorial, adding to the homage they render in New Zealand and Australia, to soldiers who have lost their lives in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
ANZAC Day is commemorated on April 25th each year and was originally conceived to honor members of the Army Corps of these two nations who served in the Gallipoli campaign, their first World War Commitment (1914 – 1918). (Embacuba NZ)
