Sisters and brothers:

Havana, 25 May 2021. On the occasion of Africa Day, a celebration that has a special significance for Cuba given the deep and unbreakable ties uniting us, I would like to express our sincerest congratulations extended to all the peoples of that dear continent. Without Africa, the history of Cuba could not be written, nor could the idiosyncrasy of the Cuban people be understood.   

From Zambia we salute the Day of Africa.
