Beirut, Lebanon.- The Jose Marti Latin American Arab Solidarity Association in Lebanon has reiterated on Tuesday the support and brotherhood towards the Cuban people amid the consternation caused by a big fire that is affecting the Matanzas Supertanker Base.

Along with friends of Cuba on this side of the world, the leadership of the Association evoked the internationalist nature of the Cuban Revolution and its capacity to turn difficult moments into opportunities to get up and continue the path of struggle towards victory, always.

In a letter, it sent condolences to the family members and close friends of the victims of the fire and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.
