Seychelles and Cuba strengthen longstanding friendships

Seychelles and Cuba strengthen longstanding friendships ( The Seychelles Vice President, Mr. Danny Faure, has met with the Cuban Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, in the margins of the United Nations General Assembly last week to reaffirm longstanding ties of friendship and cooperation between the two island nations.

During the meeting, the Vice President expressed the country's great appreciation for the remarkable job undertaken by HE Maria Aida, the outgoing Cuban Ambassador to Seychelles, in taking the level of cooperation between the two countries to greater heights. He noted that during her tenure, a record number of high-level visits were undertaken to Cuba, while at the same time, Seychelles has seen a remarkable increase both in scholarships in medicine awarded to Seychelles, as well as the number of Cuban medical doctors working in Seychelles.

For his part, the Cuban Foreign Minister expressed his gratitude to the Seychelles government for its unswerving solidarity and support against the economic embargo on Cuba, and welcomed the upcoming accreditation of the newly-appointed Ambassador to Cuba, Ms. Marie-Louise Potter, who was accompanying the Vice President at the meeting.

Also present was Selby Pillay, Principal Counselor based at the Seychelles UN Mission.
