Havana, July 30 (ACN) A Bolivian Air force Plane landed Friday at Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport with some 20 tons of humanitarian aid for the Cuban people following a recent announcement of the supportive action by President Luis Arce.
The cargo includes 2.7 tons of syringes, 16,5 tons of food and one ton of bio-security items. The aid was sent in support of the Cuban people who face the criminal US economic blockade said the Minister of the Bolivian Presidency Maria Nela Prada.
Minutes before the Bolivian plane landed in Havana, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez expressed his gratefulness to the sister nation of Bolivia and its people for the donation, which will contribute to fight the impact of two pandemics hitting the country: COVID-19 and the US siege.
Meanwhile, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel also thanked Bolivia for the gesture and stressed that the South American nation can always count on the Cuban people.
