The Cuban leader was received by Mr. Jean Victor Geneus, the ambassador of the neighboring Caribbean nation in Havana. “We have stood by and we will continue to stand by the Haitian people for as long as it is necessary, with our modest help,” Raul said.
For his part, Geneus stressed that “the people of Haiti can count on the Cuban people, who have always accompanied us and, as you have said, will continue to do it.”
“Cuba will continue beside the people of Haiti for as long as it is necessary. We will share their immense pain and we will march forward,” the Cuban leader wrote in the book of condolences.
Raul was accompanied by First VP Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, VP Esteban Lazo Hernandez, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla and Army Corps Generals Abelardo Colomé Ibarra and Leopoldo Cintra Frías.
