Speaking to ANGOP, on the occasion of the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development marked on Tuesday, Lúcia Yolene underlined that no continuity in the transmission of the elements of cultural identity which represent each region and people is the same as having no basic education.

"Those who do not have their own cultural roots have no cultural identity, because the future comes from the past, which should not be considered as a mere memory," the official remarked.

The World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development was proclaimed on May 21, 2002 by the UN General Assembly.
