The naval training school for that South American nation arrived in Cuba yesterday, as part of a training crossing. The crew was received by authorities from Cuba’s Revolutionary Navy and the ambassador of that country, Juliana Marino.
After arriving at the Havana harbor, a 21-gun salute was fired from the Morro Cabaña historic-military complex, greeting the visitors.
The Libertad commander, Marcos Ernesto Henson, said they are traveling as ambassadors of their country and as such, they carry a message of solidarity, Latin American integration, and fraternity.
Henson and many crewmembers paid tribute to Cuban National Hero Jose Marti and Argentinian patriot Jose de San Martin.
