La Paz, Jul 28 (Prensa Latina) Bolivia’s media on Wednesday highlighted President Luis Arce’s announcement to send aid to Cuba as a gesture of solidarity reciprocity.
The president informed about the approval of a decree to send a plane with syringes and food to Cuba, ABI news agency unfolded.
‘Cuba is currently going through difficulties due to the criminal blockade. (…) We learned from Cuba that solidarity is sharing the little you have with those who need it most,’ Arce tweeted on the celebration of that country’s National Rebellion Day on July 26.
The head of State said the aircraft will be loaded with solidarity, with much affection, and recalled how much Cubans have supported the people of Bolivia.
Our country has benefited from Cuban solidarity with medical brigades that have reached Bolivian homes, with thousands of eye surgeries through Operation Miracle and with literacy, the president noted on another tweet.
Arce reiterated the rejection of the Bolivian government and its people to the US economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba, which has been in force for over six decades, and demanded respect for the free self-determination of peoples.
‘Thank you Cuba for the solidarity and internationalism,’ the leader insisted.
