Dignity, resilience and unity are our greatest strengths in the face of the dishonest and mean annexationist action that serves the interests of the historical enemy of the Cuban nation in its attempt to fragment and divide us to defeat us.
After tough months of pandemic, harsh global economic crisis and a tightened and sustained blockade –that has ostensibly affected our people-, Cuba has started to revive its social life, public places and services, schools, tourism and other sectors of the economy.
The Botswana - Cuba Friendship Association issued a Solidarity Message to be read at the African Continental Virtual Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba, celebrated virtually in October 7th 2021.
The Message is signed by its President Mrs. Ruth Brown who wishes success to participants and reiterates the committement of the said Association with the Cuban people in the fight againts the blockade imposed by the US government to the Island.
The Cuban Ambassador H.E. Patricia L. Pego Guerra paid a Courtesy Call to the Speaker of the National Assembly of Botswana, Honourable Phandu Skelemani.
In the traditional atmosphere of respect and friendship the parties discussed issues of mutual interests, to strength the bilateral parliamentary relations between both countries.
Botswana and Cuba have maintained excellent parliamentary relations at the highest level, including the exchange of delegations led by the speakers of their respective legislatives organs.
