Havana, Jul 31 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez expressed gratitude on Saturday to Mexico for the humanitarian aid it has sent, and described the solidarity between the two peoples as unwavering.
In a message published on Twitter, Rodriguez welcomed the gesture by Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in the face of the aggressive policy of the United States against Cuba.
I thanked the Mexican Government and its president for the help to fight Covid-19 and alleviate the situation caused by the inhumane blockade. The solidarity between our peoples is unshakable, the diplomat tweeted.
On Friday, the Mexican Navy’s ship Libertador Bal-02 arrived in the port of Havana with 612.5 tons of food, medicines and oxygen, at a time when Cuba is also facing a rise in Covid-19 contagions.
This is the first of three vessels announced by Mexico to support Cuba.
A plane from Mexico laden with other supplies will arrive in Havana on Saturday.
