Tuesday, April 26, 2016

 The Embassy of Cuba congratulates the people and the government of South Africa on the 22nd anniversary of Freedom Day. On April 27 1994 the people of South Africa massively exercised, for the first time in the nation´s history, the right to determine their political future. This historic event was the result of a long and difficult struggle that committed the dedication, the sacrifice and the lives of many South Africans. The world witnessed with admiration the discipline and the strength of character of a nation that had endured the greatest injustices and was devoting its energy to build a future of hope and harmony, in a non-racist non-sexist society. Cuba is proud of its solid and fraternal relations with South Africa, inspired by solidarity and cooperation, with shared values and mutual respect.
