This, however, will not prevent that such a relevant event as the foundation on May 25, 1963 of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), renamed African Union (AU) in 2002 be celebrated as we Cuban always do.
On this new celebration of Africa Day, we will renew our friendship and fraternity with that sister continent to which we are bond by blood, cultural and historical ties.
