Farewell to Teresita

 by New Worker correspondent
Teresita Vicente welcomes guests

New Communist Party leader Andy Brooks joined diplomats, politicians, businessmen and solidarity workers at a reception to say goodbye to Teresita Vicente Sotolongo the Cuban ambassador, who returned to Havana at the end her five-year tour of duty in London last month.
Honoured guests, which included Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, heard Teresita highlight Cuba’s long relationship with Britain and her fond memories of Britain, at the lunch-time commemoration in a London hotel that also marked Cuba’s National Day.
Britain maintained diplomatic relations with Cuba throughout the Cold War and British–Cuban trade has thrived in recent years, boosted by the efforts of the Cuban tourist industry to attract more visitors to the socialist island in the Caribbean.
