Zambia, October 14, 2017. The President of the Councils of State and Ministers of the Republic of Cuba, Raul Castro Ruz sent a warm congratulatory message to the President of the Republic of Zambia, Edgar Chagwa Lungu on the occasion of the Zambian National Day and the 53rd anniversary of the independence.
New York, October 13, 2017. Since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, ensuring free medical care for the entire population of the country has been an inviolable principle for the Cuban state and government, for which the health of its citizens is essential. Therefore, the purpose of subjugating the Cuban people through starvation and disease as a way of violating their right to self-determination has not been effective. Nevertheless, this has caused hardships as the public health and food sectors have remained as part of the US blockade implementation objectives.
