On his Twitter account, the head of Cuban diplomacy expressed his country’s solidarity with the people and government of that island State in the Pacific Ocean, whom he wished a speedy recovery.

According to press reports, Saturday’s volcanic explosion lasted eight minutes, and caused panic among the nation’s 71,000 inhabitants, hit by 1.2-meter waves.

The event forced the islanders to take refuge in high places and set off alarms in nearby countries.
