Ambassadors and diplomats from five continents said Monday at the United Nations (UN) their solidarity with Cuba after the devastating passage of Hurricane Irma, Prensa Latina reported.
Through phone calls and social networks, the Cuban Permanent Mission to the UN has received dozens of messages of support and willingness to help the country following the scourge of Irma, who left Cuba 10 deaths and damaged much of the territory.
The head of the cabinet of the secretary general of the world body, Maria Luiza Ribeiro, transferred to the permanent representative Anayansi Rodríguez the solidarity of the Union and its support in what is necessary.
In that context, World Food Program executive director David Beasley will visit Caribbean countries impacted by Irma, including the largest of the West Indies, in the coming days.
Also from New York, where the United Nations has its headquarters, messages of encouragement have been sent to Cuba and its people.
At the start of a concert by Cuban singer Silvio Rodríguez in Central Park, the president of the City Council of the Big Apple, Melissa Mark-Viverito, highlighted the support of the island to other Caribbean nations hit by the hurricane.
Thank you Cuba, now we hope that this same endorsement will be extended to you, after the suffering of these days, affirmed the official.
