Luxembourg, Feb 2 (Prensa Latina) David Wagner, member of the Luxembourg Parliament, on Tuesday highlighted Cuba’s solidarity and the role the Henry Reeve medical brigades have played fighting Covid-19, despite the impact in the island of the blockade imposed by the United States.
‘Cuba’s attitude, embodied during the pandemic by the Henry Reeve medical brigades, has reinforced the original image of a country that shows solidarity while facing many difficulties and deprivations,’ the politician, who requested to grant the Nobel Peace Prize to those health professionals, commented in an interview with Prensa Latina.
According to Wagner, who is a member of the Left Dei Lenk party, the Nobel Peace Prize, in addition to being widely deserved, would contribute to recognize internationally a country hardest hit by the economic blockade implemented by the world’s leading power.
The member of the Luxembourg Chamber of Deputies pointed out that Cuba offers with its attitude a lesson in humility to Western governments and questioned the media treatment the Caribbean nation usually receives.
Wagner told Prensa Latina that the media’s aversion to Cuba is not shared by the peoples of the world, because it inspires respect, due to its refusal to align itself with the neoliberal capitalist model, the peaceful nature of its international relations and for helping countries in difficulties, even the wealthy ones.
