Havana, August 10 (RHC)-- The international solidarity received by Cuba after the disaster in Matanzas is the fruit of the great example that the country has sown in the service of brotherly peoples.

However, an article in Granma newspaper asserted Wednesday that in the context of sincere offers, and despite the pain of the relatives of the missing and the risk to which those on the front line trying to quell the fire are subjected, the campaigns to instill hatred and discredit do not cease.

The paper added that despite the statement that the Cuban government has not rejected any international aid, the island's enemies have insisted on making people believe that its government did not accept the collaboration of the United States.

Cuba's Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carlos Fernández de Cossío, reaffirmed on Twitter that the U.S. Government had offered condolences since Saturday, August 6 at noon, through the State Department.

Cuba thanked "directly and publicly" the U.S. gesture, the diplomat emphasized, and specified that "technical advice was offered, which the island also appreciated and accepted."

Fernandez said there is frequent communication between governments, concluding: "Speculations are unnecessary."
