Cuba sends condolences to Nepal over plane crash

Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, expressed his condolences to the people and government of Nepal for the plane crash that occurred the day before in that country near the city of Pokhara and claimed the lives of more than 60 people.

The Cuban Foreign Minister conveyed this feeling of regret and solidarity to the families and close friends of the victims.

According to the Nepalese authorities, at least 68 of the 72 passengers on board the plane died in the accident.

The plane was known to be en route from Kathmandu to the new Pokhara Airport, the country’s second most populous city, 129 kilometers west of the capital, when it crashed to the ground near its destination and burst into flames.

Prensa Latina news agency reported that the latest accident in Nepal occurred in May 2022, when a Tara Air plane flying from Pokhara to Jomsom crashed into a mountain, killing 22 people.
