Havana, Jan 19 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez expressed his condolences to the government and people of Mexico, where a gas pipeline exploded and killed more than 50 people.
‘Deep condolences to the Mexican people and government for the loss of human lives due to the pipeline explosion in Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo. I extend these condolences to the relatives of the victims,’ Rodriguez posted on Twitter.
Some 66 people lost their lives and 76 were injured in the explosion.
After the incident on Friday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that the program against gasoline theft will continue despite the unfortunate event.
It hurts very much that these practices have taken root in recent times in our country, because the images of people with buckets and drums to extract gasoline or diesel is an unfortunately matter that extended to the entire oil area through which pipelines passes, the statesman said.
