Addressing over 5,000 people at the ceremony, the Dominican president recognized the support given by Cuba and its leader since that country achieved its independence, the daily added.
Meanwhile, Lazo explained that Fidel Castro's modesty would not allow him receive such high decoration personally, and he thus received it as a recognition to "our noble and brave people, the main protagonist of more than 140 years of fight."
The thousands of Cuban collaborators who have offered and are still offering their services and solidarity in several nations worldwide are represented in this medal, he stressed.
