Expressing the gratitude of the Cuban government and people for this gesture, the first deputy minister of the Ministry of Foreign Trade, Ana Teresita Gonzalez, recalled that this is in addition to the many actions of this type carried out by the Slavic country in complex moments of the confrontation with the Covid-19 and the scourge of recent climatic events on the island.
He also described as invaluable the disinterested help of the Russian government and people, which, he said, shows that solidarity is the only way to face the reality imposed on our countries.
At the event, held at the Luis A. Turcios Lima port terminal in Havana, the Russian ambassador in Havana, Andrei Guskov, ratified his country’s willingness to continue collaborating with this Caribbean nation, both directly and through international humanitarian organizations.
He pointed out that Russia accompanies Cuba’s efforts for its development in areas such as industry, machinery, transport and energy, among others, through bilateral agreements strengthened with the visit of President Miguel Díaz-Canel to Moscow in November last year.
Both parties reaffirmed their rejection of the imposition of unilateral coercive measures as a form of political pressure against sovereign countries that defend their right to development.
