The government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines today ratified its solidarity with Cuba, in the context of the 167th anniversary of the birth of Cuba’s National Hero, José Martí.
During a meeting at the headquarters of the diplomatic mission of the largest of the Antilles in Kingston, the capital of the sister nation, Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves highlighted the role of the Cuban Revolution for the hemisphere, especially the legacy of Commander in Chief Fidel Castro, reported Prensa Latina News Agency.
During the dialogue with government officials, members of the Cuban embassy and friends of solidarity, Gonsalves exalted the altruistic vocation of the Cuban people and the historic leader of the revolution.
In view of the attempts to discredit Cuban medical collaboration, the ruler described those who promote it as hypocrites and recalled that only the largest of the Antilles is capable of voluntarily sending health personnel to combat Ebola in Africa.
At the celebration, Cuban Ambassador José Manuel Leyva highlighted the life and legacy of the Apostle, José Martí.
Leyva condemned the campaign of US imperialism against Cuban medical solidarity and pointed out the humanistic vocation of health professionals, whom Fidel defined as apostles and creators of a more humane world.
