The participants of the just ended Gambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) Trade Fair have expressed dissatisfaction over low sales experienced during the trade fair period.
Despite the cruel and prolonged blockade that for almost 60 yearsWashington imposes, our small Caribbean island demonstrates its
commitment to international solidarity by sending its doctors to combat this terrible epidemic in the affected countries.
It also constitutes a genocidal act that has been prevented by the US blockade that a donation from China came to Cuba to combat COVID-19. Once again the brutal empire of the North shows its true face.
From The Gambia we reaffirm our commitment to international solidarity.
Our doctors and health personnel will be on the front line of combat facing that silent and apparent faceless enemy that it is COVID-19.
Again we reiterate our rejection to the interference and interest of the US in attacking and harassing the medical cooperation of the largest of the Antilles under unfounded excuses, and for political purposes.
With that media campaign and harassment against our collaborators the discredited regime of President Donald Trump only seeks to tarnish the altruistic and solidary labor carried out by Cuba, and constitutes not only an offensive act against our country, but also against the rest of the world.
Cuba will continue to send doctors and not bombs to the world.
Go ahead our Titans of the White Robes, humanity is waiting for us.
Long live solidarity!
Long live Cuba!
Down with the blokade!
