The ceremony was held Wednesday at the Teresa Carreño theater in Caracas in the framework of an international meeting of solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution, attended by 300 solidarity activists from around the world.
Addressing those present, President Maduro extended his people's gratitude to the Cuban government and people for the development assistance provided in several economic and social fields.
