Bolivian Foreign Minister Has Great Expectations about Cuba Visit

HAVANA – The Bolivian foreign minister said Monday in Havana that he has great expectations for his official visit to the island and his goal of nailing down essential economic elements in the two countries’ relationship.

Foreign Minister Fernando Huanacuni told his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez, at the start of their official talks, that his team is “ready” to review matters on the bilateral agenda in line with “the ideology we have in common...while nailing down certain essential aspects like economic matters.”

“We believe the ideology must be an integral part of the economic matters,” the Bolivian minister said, after expressing his “deep respect and admiration” for Cuba, which he said represents for Bolivia a “symbol of dignity” and the keystone of support for all revolutionary processes.

For his part, Rodriguez expressed Cuba’s readiness to continue developing mutual cooperation, particularly in the healthcare area including medical services plus pharmaceutical and biotechnological development, as well as in the existing project for fruit processing and in others that are making progress.

He expressed Cuba’s admiration for Bolivia’s defense of just causes in the region, its solidarity with Venezuela and its clash with the “manipulations of the Organization of American States (OAS).”

He also repeated the island’s support for Bolivia’s right to have sovereign access to the sea, and thanked the government of the South American nation for its “permanent struggle” against the economic, financial and trade embargo imposed by the United States on Cuba.

Bolivia is one of the island’s chief allies in Latin America and President Evo Morales has visited the Caribbean country on a number of occasions.
