We have kept it here,” exalted the head of state, in a meeting with 43 of his compatriots, experts in highly complex operations, who returned from Matanzas, after supporting the work of extinguishing the largest sinister in the history of the Caribbean island.
Thank you, brother @NicolásMaduro. For what they did and what they will do for our beloved #Cuba. I listened to your words with grateful emotion. Together again, we will recover what the fire took. #CubaIsCouragehttps://t.co/lh5CKNlrSB
