The Ministry of Public Health of the Republic of Cuba, committed to the solidarity and humanistic principles that have guided Cuba’s medical cooperation for 55 years, has been participating in the Program More Doctors for Brazil since its inception in August 2013. This initiative launched by Dilma Rousseff, who was at that moment the president of the Federal Republic of Brazil, pursued the double purpose of guaranteeing medical assistance to the majority of the Brazilian people, following the principle of universal health coverage promoted by the World Health Organization.
The second day of President Miguel Díaz-Canel’s official visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) began with a warm greeting he conveyed to the North Korean people from the Cuban people and Army General Raúl Castro.
First on the day’s agenda was a meeting with the President of the Supreme People’s Assembly Presidium, Kim Yong Nam, where Díaz-Canel commented, “Relations between Cuba and the DPRK are historic, and based on mutual respect.”
Next he visited Kim Il-sung University, established in 1946.
The Cuban and Chinese people know well the meaning of the friendship and mutual respect they have shared for years. Thus it was no surprise to hear Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez say that he felt “at home” here.
During the third day of his official visit to China, the Cuban President paid tribute to Mao Zedong, the supreme leader of the Communist Party of China and the People’s Republic of China, from 1949 through 1976.
