Raul Castro Underlines Cuba’s Willingness to Collaborate with UNESCO

PARIS – Cuban President Raul Castro stressed on Tuesday his country’s willingness to continue its collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, or UNESCO, during his visit to the organization’s headquarters in Paris, where he met with Director-General Irina Bokova.

Castro, who started an official visit to France on Monday, said that UNESCO can count on the collaboration of Cuba for the development of education, science and culture, which contributes to the development of humanity, freedom and well-being.

The Cuban leader also expressed his country’s readiness to “work with all countries of the world,” and cited the role of Havana in the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the rebel Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, as well as the role of Cuban doctors to face the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

Irina Bokova congratulated the president for the transformation process in Cuba and stressed that the organization will continue to support Cuba every step of the way.

The Cuban leader began the second day of his trip to Paris at UNESCO’s headquarters, after he was received on Monday by French President François Hollande.

Both leaders signed agreements in several fields such as economy, transport and tourism, and addressed the implementation of new plans and joint projects that were opened after the agreement reached last December with the Paris Club for the restructuring of the Cuban debt.
