The government and people of Cuba congratulated Jamaica this Thursday on the 58th anniversary of its independence and reaffirmed their willingness to deepen the ties of brotherhood and cooperation that characterize the relations between both countries.
According to the Caribbean nation's diplomatic mission in Jamaica, President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez and Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez conveyed messages of congratulations to the highest authorities of the Caribbean nation in the context of National Independence Day.
The Cuban president sent his words to the governor general of Jamaica, Patric Linton, and to Prime Minister Andrew Holnnes, while a similar message was sent by the head of foreign affairs to his counterpart Kamina Johnson-Smith.
In addition to the greeting for the date, the messages reiterate the willingness of Cuban leaders to strengthen solidarity ties, as a sign of more than 47 years of diplomatic ties.
Cuba and Jamaica share geographical proximity and historical origins, as well as independence processes against European slavery and colonialism.
