Respect, admiration, friendship and cooperation are the benchmark of our bilateral relations,” he said.

“The younger generations of the Sahara will continue to have this opportunity, which, without a doubt, makes the relationship between the two peoples worthy,” said Rodriguez Hernandez, who also mentioned the work of more than a hundred Cuban specialists in the desert sands.
“The leadership and resistance of the Saharan brothers during these 50 years,” he said, “are admired by peoples who recognize the enormous sacrifices they have made in their firm determination to maintain their noble and legitimate aspirations to achieve full sovereignty. and self-determination,” he said.
