The President of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel, who is visiting Argentina to attend the inauguration ceremony of the President-elect Alberto Fernandez, paid tribute to the Argentine independence leader Jose de San Martin (1778-1850) on Monday.
The Cuban Foreign Affairs Ministry reported on its Twitter account that Diaz-Canel paid tribute to Jose de San Martin, the liberator of the South and father of the Argentine Republic, as he was called by the Cuban National Hero of Cuba, Jose Marti.
