Cuba ratifies ties of brotherhood and cooperation with Africa

HAVANA, Cuba, May 26 (ACN) In a post on X to commemorate Africa Day, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel assured that he will continue to strengthen ties of brotherhood and cooperation with African nations and highlighted their role in the formation of the identity, culture, history and fighting spirit of the Cubans.

In other posts, Esteban Lazo Hernández, president of the National Assembly of People’s Power and of the Council of State, congratulated the African peoples, parliaments and legislative authorities on behalf of Cuban deputies, whereas Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla reasserted his support and commitment to the priorities of the African countries, whose legacy has been vital to Cuban history, nationality and culture, and thanked them for their permanent solidarity with Cuba.

Africa Day is observed every year on May 25 to mark the foundation of the Organization of African Unity—today the African Union (AU)—on this date in 1963, based on its pledge to support the work done by freedom fighters and eliminate military access to colonial nations and established a charter designed to improve living standards in member states.

The celebration hails the continent’s achievements and invites reflection on the challenges facing Africa in the near future.
