The diplomatic representative, accompanied by Kumar and a group of teachers of the school, as well as by the Chargé d’Affaires of the Cuban Embassy Juan Carlos Marcoff, paid tribute to the National Hero of Cuba José Martí with a wreath before the bust.
During the talks, Principal Suman Kumar explained to the visitor the characteristics of the José Martí School, which houses 1,300 students from kindergarten to pre-university level, in addition to the particular study conditions that both students and teachers had to face after the Covid-19 pandemic broke out in the country.
They also recalled the traditional friendship between the peoples of both countries and discussed the singularities and similarities between the two nations.
Simancas stressed that the two main issues for Cuba have always been health and education, especially for children, and that this Monday the country begins a period of new normalcy, after having immunized almost the entire Cuban population with the vaccines produced nationally to fight the contagious disease.
The Cuban ambassador and his hostess toured several classrooms, halls and areas of the Indian educational facility and agreed to carry out activities with their students to learn more about the life, culture and history of the Cuban people.
