South Africa to Expand Cooperation with Cuba

Pretoria, February 7 (RHC) -– The government of South Africa on Friday stressed its interest in continuing to develop cooperation programs with Cuba.

Speaking at a meeting of solidarity with Cuba in Cape Town, the Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Marius Fransman said that the shared struggle and aspirations of the two countries ensure a mutual commitment to advance bilateral ties.

We want to reiterate our invariable and inflexible support to the legitimate struggle of the Cuban people, and our commitment to continue strengthening bilateral and multilateral political relations, the government delegate said.

Domestic Affairs Minister Grace Naledi Mandisa Pandor said Cuba can look back to 55 years of revolutionary history with pride, because it has played a key role in shaping international policy.

It was announced that one hundred students from the South African province of Limpopo will travel to Cuba to study medicine, as part of Havana's international medical scholarships program.
