Cuban Prime Minister underlines Nelson Mandela’s legacy

Havana, Jul 18 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero on Tuesday underlined the legacy of anti-apartheid activist and South African politician Nelson Mandela, on the occasion of his International Day.

On Twitter, the Cuban head of Government conveyed the Cuban people’s tribute to the man he described as an unconditional friend of the historic leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro, and of Cuba, and who dedicated his life to the struggle against apartheid and all expressions of social injustice.

In November 2009, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed July 18, Mandela’s birthday, to commemorate the Nelson Mandela International Day, in recognition of his contributions.

Since September 2018, a statue of Mandela has greeted those entering the main building at the United Nations headquarters in New York.
