Islamabad, May 28th, 2021._ The exchange held today by Ambassador Zéner J. Caro with a representation of Pakistani children and youth at the Fatima Jinnah Park in Islamabad turned into an emotional act of solidarity with Cuba and condemnation of the US blockade. The Friends of Cuba network convened the meeting on the fifteenth anniversary of the conclusion of the Henry Reeve Brigade's support mission after the 2005 Kashmir earthquake.
Islamabad, 1 May 2021. Ramzan Mughal, President of the Pakistan-Cuba Social Forum, ratified his country's solidarity and firm rejection of the US blockade, while speaking on the panel of the Virtual Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba organised by the Cuban Workers' Central and the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).
"In these times of hardship and health crisis, the blockade and all sanctions against Cuba must be lifted," said Mughal in his remarks, which have been reproduced by several local media on this International Workers' Day.
Islamabad, March 27, 2021. In October 2005, when the first group of Cuban doctors from the Henry Reeve Brigade arrived in Pakistan to help the victims of the powerful earthquake in Kashmir, Jamal Nasir Malik and Sohaib Haider were two teenagers who dreamed of studying medicine; Muhammad Ramzan Mughal, a young photojournalist from Islamabad; and Attshan Ali Abbasi, a twelve-year-old boy who served as a translator for those strangers in white coats who arrived in his village loaded with medicine and hope.
