Luanda, Nov 10 – Cuban embassy’s representatives in Angola today demanded the release of the Cuban anti-terrorist fighters held at US prisons, in the occasion of the 38th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Cuba and this African nation.
“Amid the commemorative act to mark the historical links with Angola, we join our voices to support the Cuban people in this call to justice and freedom for its children,” said the Caribbean country’s.
Addressing the Cuban diplomatic staff led by ambassador Gisela Garcia, the military attaché condemned the ignominious silence of the big capitalist press regarding the situation of the Cuban Five, as the anti terrorist fighters are known in the international campaign for their release.
