Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel met Friday at the Palace of the Revolution with 144 young Palestinians studying medicine in our country.

The president detailed in his account on X, formerly Twitter, that it is an honor and a tremendous pride to be able to embrace them all. "Our country is, and will always be, at the side of the cause of the brotherly people of Palestine", said the head of state.

Of these young people, 53 were born in the Gaza Strip, where Israel is today committing an unprecedented genocide.

With life stories marked by the horror of genocide practically from birth, the young Palestinians demand an end to the barbarism, complete and lasting freedom for Palestine, the return of refugees, and a better life for Palestinian children.

The Palestinian youth, as a token of their appreciation, presented the President with the kufiya, a symbol of their people's resistance.

The meeting was also attended by Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero and Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, as well as other authorities of the Cuban Communist Party.

The José Martí memorial in the Cuban capital will later host a cantata of solidarity with the people of Palestine.

The activity foresees the participation of renowned Cuban artists such as Nancy Morejón, Corina Mestre, Silvio Alejandro Rodríguez, Eduardo Sosa and Miguel Barnet; as well as performers from the Hermanos Saíz Association.

Cuba has expressed on numerous occasions its unconditional support for the right of Palestine to be a free and sovereign state, with its capital in East Jerusalem and in pre-1967 borders.

There are 224 young Palestinians studying in the Caribbean nation, 78 of them from the Gaza Strip. Since 2005, 104 Palestinian doctors have graduated here and a score of them are currently doing some specialty .
