According to a statement from the Cuban foreign ministry, the health professionals were welcomed at the Velana International Airport by the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Sha Abdulla Mahir, and by the Cuban ambassador to the that nation, Andres Gonzalez.

Members of the friendship group with Cuba, recently formed in the Maldivian parliament, and the undersecretary of the Maldivian foreign ministry, Shiuneen Rasheed, also took part in the reception.
