Cuba salutes Saint Lucia
Prime Minister proudly wears his Jose Marti medal of honour.

On Tuesday, May 28, 2013, Prime Minister Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, a recipient of the Jose Marti medal of honour, laid a wreath at the base of the monument of the National Hero at Revolution Square, Havana, before proceeding to hold official talks with President Raoul Castro.

During the wreath-laying ceremony, Prime Minister Anthony was greeted by military salute and the national anthem of the Republic of Cuba and Saint Lucia.

Dr. Anthony is one of the few distinguished recipients of the honour of Jose Marti, the highest honour bestowed upon a foreign dignitary by the government of the Republic of Cuba.

Following the ceremony, President Castro and Prime Minister Anthony, who was accompanied by Minister Moses Jn. Baptiste, exchanged views on a wide range of subjects of mutual interest in a private meeting.

During the meeting, Dr. Anthony expressed his deepest gratitude for the assistance given to Saint Lucia in the past and highlighted Cuba’s unwavering and unmatched support in the areas of health care and education.

The prime minister and his delegation ended the evening by attending an official dinner held in honour of Dr. Anthony at the Cubanacan Protocol Room.
