African Union representative thanks Cuba's solidarity
Kinshasa, 16 Oct (Prensa Latina) The special Representative of the African Union Commission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Michelle Ndiaye Helene Natou, on Friday thanked Cuba's solidarity with African nations.
Different signs of collaboration and internationalism distinguish Cuba's historical relationship with Africa in the path of the common struggle for justice, equality and self-determination of the peoples, the representative said in an exchange held here with the Cuban ambassador Eva Yelina Silva.
They agreed that the impacts of Covid-19 on an international scale confirm the need to strengthen and diversify cooperation among developing countries, as well as to lift sanctions or measures that hinder to crack down on poverty and the fulfillment of sustainable development goals.
In this regard, Ndiaye restated the African Union's invariable stance of strongly rejecting the economic, commercial and financial US blockade against Cuba, which has caused enormous damage to Cuba's economy and its people, she said.
The Donald Trump administration's sanctions meant a step back in the bilateral relations with Cuba, regretted Silva, who contrasted Washington's official stance with the vision of US organizations and personalities who advocate for a change of policy.
