Gambia Friendship Association condemns terrorist attack against Cuban Embassy in the US

May 11, 2020, 1:13 PM

Banjul, May 7. - The Gambia-Cuba Friendship Association today condemned a recent terrorist attack perpetrated against the Embassy of the largest Antilles in the United States, and called for global solidarity with the Cuban people and Government.

In a note sent to its Diplomatic Headquarters of the Caribbean Island in this West African nation, the aforementioned organization urges Washington to respect international laws and human rights.

On March 31, the Cuban Embassy in the US was deliberately shot by an individual armed with an Ak-47 machine gun, which was undoubtedly a premeditated terrorist action, according to repeated complaints.

In the text, the Gambian Friendship Association expresses its rejection of that aggression, and demands that the international community intensify its support for the largest of the Antilles, always in solidarity with all peoples, and especially with Africans.

They highlights that Cuba, in the midst of the cruel blockade imposed by Washington for almost 60 years, has never spared efforts to help all countries, as its doctors and health personnel are doing now in the fight against the Covid-19 that lashes and mourns humanity.

In this sense, the note urges all solidarity movements to fight together against this pandemic that threatens the life and future well-being of human beings.
