Cuban ambassador attends ceremony on Serbian State Day

Belgrade, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Ambassador in Belgrade Leyde Rodriguez Hernandez attended a State Ceremony in Orašac on the Serbian State Day, also attended by Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić, diplomatic sources noted on Friday.

The commemoration is connected with the beginning of the First Serbian Uprising in Orašac on February 15, 1804, and the proclamation of the Sretenje Constitution of the Principality of Serbia on February 15, 1835, the source added. On its X account, Cuba’s Foreign Ministry congratulated the people and Government of the Republic of Serbia on the occasion of their National Day.

“We ratify the will to continue to strengthen the historic relations of friendship and cooperation between our countries,” the Cuban Foreign Ministry noted.

During the State ceremony in Orašac, Bishop Jovan of Šumadija said that a nation that does not remember its predecessors and the past is not worthy of the present and the future.

Dačić, in turn, noted that “exactly 220 years ago, the most prominent people of the Serbian people gathered in this place and made one of the most important decisions in our history.”

They decided to start the struggle for freedom, which the previous generations had been dreaming about for centuries, the head of Serbian diplomacy added.

The President of Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, indicated that he is convinced that the unity of the Serbian people is unbreakable and indestructible, wherever our people are.
