Prime Minister Dr. Kenny D. Anthony commenced his official visit to Cuba, when along with his delegation, he visited the Institute of Friendship with the Peoples where he held talks with President of the Institute Kenya Serrano and mothers of the five Cubans imprisoned in the United States of America.
During the visit, Dr. Anthony reaffirmed his commitment to working closely with the Institute to promote the relationship that is currently being enjoyed between Cuba, Saint Lucia and the rest of the region.
Dr. Anthony told those present: “Cuba has been an extraordinary friend, whose contribution to Saint Lucia is immeasurable. Over the years, we have benefited from scholarships in education and healthcare. Additionally, Cuba has willingly provided technical support to Saint Lucia in several fields. The beauty of this relationship is that Cuba gives with no strings and asks for nothing in return. I treasure this friendship and assure you that the relationship between Cuba and Saint Lucia will be maintained and strengthened. This relationship is not for sale and non-negotiable.”
During the exchange with the family of the imprisoned Cubans, Prime Minister Anthony told the two mothers present that he admired their courage and strength throughout their continuing ordeal.
