Havana, November 29 (RHC)-- Cuba's Minister of Energy and Mines, Vicente de la O Levy, described as successful the tour of Algeria, Russia, Turkey and China regarding the energy issue, a priority on the government's agenda.

The head of the delegation, one of the members of the delegation headed by President Miguel Díaz-Canel, said that the agreements and decisions reached in these four destinations will alleviate the complex situation of the National Electric Energy System (SEN).

In the case of Algeria, he said, among the actions reported by President Abdelmajid Tebboune is the restitution of a stable fuel supply to the Caribbean nation for the supply of power plants.

He also mentioned the donation of a photovoltaic park, which will remain in Havana, but will be interconnected with the SEN and will benefit all the people, from Pinar del Río to Guantánamo, according to his statements to national journalists, broadcast on television.

On the other hand, in Russia they also discussed the subject, from issues such as the shipment of fuel, renewable energy and the operation of thermoelectric plants and, regarding the results in Türkiye, he recalled the floating plants for electricity generation.

During the meeting with representatives of Turkish companies, these actions and their continuity were evaluated and multiple business opportunities were identified, beneficial for both parties and with priority in renewable energies.

Finally, in China, initiatives for the resumption of the photovoltaic parks, stopped due to the lack of financing, as well as the analysis and flexibility of the payment conditions and the continuity of the investments were pointed out.

"Now it is up to us, with our embassies, specialists and technicians, to implement all these agreements as quickly as possible," the official told the President's press team, a few hours after his arrival in Havana.

He also reiterated "the commitment to reduce the effects on the population in the month of December", through the support and stability of the electric system and anticipated the arrival of a much more efficient stage.
