Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel paid tribute on Monday to the victims of the military dictatorship and state terrorism in Argentina, as part of his official visit to that South American nation that began this Sunday.

The president and the delegation accompanying him arrived at the Memory Park, a 14-hectare public space located on the coastal belt of the La Plata River, in Buenos Aires, to pay tribute to the victims of State terrorism in the 1970s and 1980s.

There, Diaz-Canel placed a flower on the plates that recall Jesus Cejas and Crescencio Galañena, two Cuban diplomats who disappeared during Jorge Rafael Videla's military dictatorship (1976-1981).

After the tour through the Park of Memory, the Cuban president and his companions threw flowers into the river, in remembrance of the victims of state terrorism in that country, about 30.000, between disappeared and murdered, according to official sources.

This morning, Diaz-Canel also paid tribute to Argentine independence hero Jose de San Martin (1778-1850), father of the Argentine Republic, as Cuban National Hero Jose Marti called him.

The Cuban president has been on an official visit to the southern nation since yesterday, where he will participate on December 10 in the swearing-in of president-elect Alberto Fernandez and vice president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.
