La Paz, Jul 29 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Luis Arce on Thursday confirmed the shipment of syringes, food and biosecurity supplies to Cuba in the framework of reciprocity between peoples.
All our solidarity with the Caribbean nation, which not only faces the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic but also the brutal economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States, the president wrote on his Twitter account.
Arce charged that this hostile policy that is more than 60 years old affects more than ever the health and food rights of Cubans.
A plane laden with the solidarity aid will leave for Cuba on Friday 2.5 tons of disposable syringes, 16.5 tons of food and one ton of biosecurity supplies, as explained by Minister of the Presidency Maria Nela Prada at a press conference.
Prada reiterated the inhumane, criminal and genocidal nature of Washington’s unilateral sanctions against Havana, and said that they are the main cause of the current shortages in the Caribbean country.
‘From Bolivia we raise our voices of sovereignty, resistance and solidarity with the Cuban Revolution,’ he said.
That action joins others from countries such as Nicaragua, Mexico, Russia and Vietnam, which have also donated medical resources and food to the Cuban people in recent days.
