We are saddened to hear of the loss of life and the missing firefighters in the tragedy. We thank all of those countries which are also providing help to Cuba to contain the blaze and hope that our own government and others will follow their lead and support Cuba to recover from this terrible accident, as Cuba has always supported other countries in times of need.
Our solidarity goes out to all those affected by this tragedy and we hope that the fires will be contained soon and the healing and recovery can begin.
