“We persevere in our battle for the safe return to Cuba of Doctors Assel Herrera Correa and Landy Rodriguez Hernandez. Four years after their kidnapping, we continue our tireless efforts to have them among us, together with their families and their people,” the president wrote on his Twitter account.
The two Cuban experts were kidnapped in the Kenyan city of Mandera (northeast), on the border with Somalia and the target of attacks by the Somali jihadist group Al Shabab.
Since then, Cuban authorities have reported that they have taken steps for the return of the doctors, as well as keeping in touch with their families.
The Kenyan Government also reported efforts for the same purpose.
