Ricardo Alarcón de Quesada, President of Cuba’s National People’s Power Assembly met with Abadula Gemeda Dago, President of Ethiopia’s House of Representatives, during the leader’s visit to Cuba.

"The relations between our two countries are based on blood," recalled Gemeda Dago. "Many Cubans gave their lives in Ethiopia fighting for freedom. All our people, not just our government, hold you in our thoughts."

Additionally, he offered his gratitude for the education received in Cuba by Ethiopian youth who are now making a contribution in various sectors of the country’s society, economy and, in some cases, at the highest political levels.

He emphasized, as well, that a great indicator of the goodwill shared by the two countries was the hospitality with which he was received and expressed his thanks for the warm welcome.

Alarcón, in turn, said that it is a source of satisfaction for Cubans to have supported the Ethiopian people, in their struggle for independence, emblematic in the history of African nations.
