Military exercises staged in Cuba

A military drill was staged from November 18 to 20 to mark the day of national defence in Cuba.

Units of the Ministry of Revolutionary Armed Forces, Ministry of the Interior and militia, socio-economic institutions and mass organizations took part in the exercises.

They practised tactics to cope with special conditions according to the concept of war embracing all people and improved the exchange of information, cooperative operation and command capacity in the atmosphere of real war.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who participated in the drill with university students in Havana, said that all the people took part in the drill, adding that the fact that university students take an active part in the drill for national defence under such a complex situation as today demonstrates their support to the socialist cause.
