Upali Bandara, secretary general of that group, also highlighted in an article published by the newspaper the acts of solidarity and goodwill of the Cubans towards their people, since the visit of the legendary guerrilla commander Ernesto Che Guevara to the South Asian country in 1959.

The friendship between Cuba and Sri Lanka continued to grow deeper and broader, and the Cubans gave their support to the Sri Lankan people on several notable occasions such as the tsunami that struck the country’s shores in 2004, Bandara remembered.

On that occasion, Sri Lanka quickly received a team of well committed Cuban doctors and hundreds of paramedics and health camps were immediately set up and operated for more than two months since the disaster took place.

In addition, Cuba donated a large amount of essential medical supplies to support the directly affected population.

Also, more than 2000 Sri Lankan medical students graduated in Cuba and these doctors are currently providing their best service throughout this state island in the Indian Ocean.
