Gambian Foreign Minister thanks Cuba for solidarity

Banjul, July 6. – The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Gambia, Mamadou Tangara, thanked today for the solidarity aid that Cuba has historically provided to Africa and her country, especially in the field of health.

Tangara received on Monday at the Chancellery headquarters the ambassador of the Caribbean island in this West African nation, Rubén G. Abelenda, to whom he transmitted the gratitude of his government and his people for the humanitarian work they have been doing here for more 20 years old members of the Cuban Medical Brigade (BMC).

He expressed that despite the unjust and prolonged blockade imposed on it, the largest of the Antilles has never ceased to be in solidarity, and its medical workers today fight Covid-19 in many countries of this continent, and in other regions of the world .

He stated that in the Gambia, Cuban doctors and healthcare personnel are seen working with great humanism, professionalism and responsibility throughout the national territory.

Africa and the Gambia will be forever grateful to the Caribbean nation for all it has done for us, he said.

For his part, Ambassador Abelenda reiterated Cuba’s will and determination to continue collaborating with countries that request it.

 

The US blockade and aggressions against the West Indies Island will never be an impediment to helping those who need it most, the Cuban diplomat told the Gambian Foreign Minister.

 

In the cordial and friendly meeting, Tangara and Abelenda reviewed the ties between their respective nations, which they described as very positive.
