Miguel Díaz-Canel: Africa can always count on Cuba

The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, stated on Africa Day that this continent can always count on the island.

The president tweeted saying that the Spanish brought from Africa the ancestors of the current generations of Cubans, who returned in tens of thousands, voluntarily, to fight for the independence of African countries.

'Together we shed the shared blood; together we face the challenge of development,' wrote Díaz-Canel. 'Cuba has brought solidarity and brotherhood to a continent where empires have only brought contempt, wars and looting.'
