President of Seychelles Opens His Country's Embassy in Cuba

Havana, April 26 (RHC)-- President of the Republic of Seychelles Danny Faure officially inaugurated Wednesday his country's embassy in Cuba -- the first of the African Union nation in the entire Latin American and Caribbean region.

President Faure arrived in Havana Tuesday on an official visit.  Although officially inaugurated Wednesday, the embassy of the Republic of Seychelles in Cuba has been fully operational since late 2016.

In statements to the press upon arriving at Havana's José Martí International Airport, the president of Seychelles, who obtained a degree in political science here in Cuba back in 1985, underscored Cuba's contribution to development efforts in his country, particularly in the fields of healthcare and education.

About Cuba's cooperation, he said: “All I can say to Cuba is 'thank you' over and over again.”

According to official data, more than 200 young people from Seychelles have graduated from Cuban universities and other educational centers. About 16 young people from the archipelago and nation in the Indian Ocean are currently studying here in Cuba.

As part of his visit agenda, the Seychelles head of state will pay tribute to Cuban National Hero José Martí at Havana's Revolution Square and will hold talks with Cuban government officials, including Parliament President Esteban Lazo.
