Cuban Medical Brigade Commends Gambia for Recognition of their Work


The Cuban Medical Brigade (BMC) thanked the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Gambia, Dr. Mamadou Tangara, for the public recognition of their work in curing and saving lives in the West African nation, a press release from the Cuban Foreign Ministry says.

Representing the BMC, Dr. Ahmed Gutiérrez Rama personally expressed gratitude on behalf of his colleagues to Dr. Tangara for highlighting that the help provided by the health professionals of the Caribbean Island, resonates deeply with the Gambian people.

Dr. Gutiérrez accompanied by the ambassador of the Greater Antilles in the Gambia, Rubén G. Abelenda, thanked Dr. Tangara for the recognition that the Cuban collaborators received from the authorities of this brother West African country.

On his part, Abelenda delivered to the head of Gambian diplomacy, a letter of solidarity and gratitude from his foreign minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, and later both interlocutors took advantage of the occasion to review the very positive ties between their respective nations.

In a press release from the Foreign Ministry, The Gambia unequivocally reaffirmed its solidarity with Cuba, particularly on the need to lift the blockade on the Island and exclude it from the spurious list of terrorism-sponsoring countries.
