On behalf of the Cuban people and government, she thanked Algeria for its systematic stance against the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the United States for more than 60 years.

Rodríguez Camejo referred to the potential for cooperation in the biopharmaceutical spheres, production of medicines and vaccines, the energy area, and the sports sector.

For his part, the Algerian diplomat confirmed that there are capacities to be exploited, as the countries have developed spheres and their economic operators know and appreciate each other.

"Regular dialogues and consultations, and economic cooperation with the prospect of expansion characterize the bilateral relations of my country and Cuba," Abdelkrim Benchiach pointed out.

Present for Cuba were Ángel Arzuaga Reyes, deputy head of the International Relations Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba; Yolanda Ferrer Gómez, president of the International Relations Commission of the National Assembly of People's Power; and Hero of the Republic Fernando González Llort, president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples.
