Havana - Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Wednesday extolled the legacy of the intellectual and researcher Fernando Ortiz (1881-1969), whose work was acknowledged here as Cultural Heritage of the Nation.
On his Twitter account, the president said, 'Well deserved acknowledgement of the work by the eminent Cuban sage #SomosCuba #SomosContinuidad'.
