Furthermore, The Gambia unequivocally reaffirms its solidarity with Cuba on the international stage, particularly on the need to lift all economic sanctions imposed on Cuba. In light of the allegations labeling Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism and the detrimental impact of the accompanying measures on the Cuban people, The Gambia advocates for dialogue as a preferred alternative to punitive sanctions and conflict.

As we celebrate this momentous occasion, it is imperative to reflect on the progress achieved through our partnership and recommit ourselves to further deepening and diversifying bilateral cooperation for the mutual benefit of our two nations.
