Nigeria, November 29th, 2019. President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed satisfaction with relations between Cuba and Nigeria, particularly the hand of fellowship extended in the area of health care and transfer of knowledge.
The President stated this on Thursday when he received the outgoing Cuban Ambassador to Nigeria, Carlos Trejo Sosa, at the State House, Abuja, on Thursday.
Amb. Sosa has been in Nigeria for five years.
Cuba and the African countries are united by historical ties which have always been ruled by mutual solidarity and collaboration. In the case of the Southern African Development Community (SADC),we have very positive relations with its 16 Member States and within its sub regional organization where we have an accredited Ambassador.
NIGERIA, October 14, 2019. The AIT television network, which is reaching the African continent, broadcast an exclusive interview with the Cuban ambassador, Carlos Trejo Sosa.
During the meeting, the Cuban ambassador explained about the components of the Cuban National Health System, a strategy based on the conception of health as a human right, applied with equity and solidarity, principles that have allowed the Caribbean Island to show one of the best indexes of world health despite the US blockade.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounces and strongly condemns the United States government’s recent aggression against Cuba through a USAID program to finance projects and seek information to discredit and sabotage Cuba's international health care cooperation in dozens of countries, benefitting millions of people. This plan joins the disgraceful pressure exerted on several governments to hamper Cuban cooperation, and previous attempts with the same purpose such as the special “parole” program meant to rob human resources trained in Cuba.
