Cuba thanks the government of Kenya for its cooperation

Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

As a result of the procedures carried out by comrade Esteban Lazo,  Speaker of the National People’s Power Assembly and President of the Council of State of Cuba, in his condition as High Level Special Envoy of the President of the Republic during his visit to the Republic of Kenya, particularly during his meeting with President William Ruto, sensitive information has been obtained which would contribute to advance in the still limited clarification of the news published about the alleged death of Cuban doctors Assel Herrera Correa and Landy Rodríguez Hernández in Somalia, where they remained kidnapped. 

Comrade Lazo confirmed the spirit of cooperation shown by the government of Kenya and appreciated its understanding of this sensitive and painful matter.

The information obtained is being currently processed by the authorities in charge of following up on such a thorough and important investigation. Meanwhile, procedures are being followed with several governments and international actors in search for cooperation and further clarification.
