Featured Diaz-Canel welcomes arrival of Cuban doctors returning from Bolivia

On his official Twitter account, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel greeted on Monday a group of Cuban health workers who returned today from Bolivia, following the coup d'état and threats against doctors of the island working in the Andean nation.

'They return victorious. Welcome to our Homeland, dear compatriots of the Cuban Medical Brigade in Bolivia,' the president tweeted.

'You honor your profession and uphold human solidarity,' he added in reference to the group of 207 health specialists who arrived at the Jose Marti International Airport in this capital at dawn.

With this second flight, 431 Cuban collaborators have so far returned from Bolivia, where the medical brigade has performed 1,529,301 operations and provided over 73,330,400 medical consultations over more than ten years.
