Gambia, Cuba to Celebrate 45th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations


On May 19, Gambia and Cuba will celebrate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations, a historic date for both sister nations as they unite in defence of their sovereignty and independence.

Ruben G. Abelenda, the Ambassador of Cuba in Gambia on behalf of his government and compatriots, conveyed sincere congratulations to the Gambian authorities and their kind and hospitable people on the birthday of their bilateral ties, ‘‘which we are sure, will continue to strengthen in the future.’’

The Cuban Ambassador said he appreciates the solidarity and friendship that this geographically small country with a big heart, has offered Cubans.

‘‘We reiterate once again that the Caribbean Island will continue to cooperate with The Gambia, especially in the field of health, and in other areas where our help and support is needed,’’ Ambassador Abelenda said.

He added that Gambia and Cuba are today an example of that phrase which says: ‘‘The grateful always accompany each other.’’
