ALGIERS-The relationship of friendship, solidarity, and mutual support between Algeria and Cuba “is a model,” said Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez.
“Cuba and Algeria are a model of friendship, solidarity, and mutual support since 1963, the year when Cuba sent a team of doctors to cooperate with the Algerian brotherly people,” said the Cuban president in a joint press statement with the President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, after their talks at the headquarters of the Presidency of the Republic.
Stressing that his visit, which coincides with the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries, has a “great significance”, the Cuban president recalled that his country was the first in Latin America to recognize the Algerian Republic.
There has been “a whole history of events, exchanges, and collaborations that have strengthened our ties,” he continued.
My visit to the Museum of the Mujaheed is an opportunity to pay tribute to the martyrs of the heroic Algerian people and to better understand its struggle and its resistance against colonialism, he said.
The Cuban Head of State stated that political relations between Algeria and his country were “excellent”, saying that his meeting with President Tebboune has highlighted the convergence of views on international and regional issues of common interest.
“We agreed to boost economic, trade, and financial ties to bring them to the level of political relations,” he said, stressing that the two countries are working to boost their cooperation in the areas of health, energy, renewable energy, agriculture, culture, education, science, and technology.
President Diaz-Canel Bermudez welcomed the rescheduling of the debt of Cuba to Algeria.
This is an “important support from Algeria to Cuba and a testimony of its understanding of the situation prevailing in my country,” he said.
The Cuban president thanked the President of the Republic for “the warm welcome and the opportunity to discuss, directly and openly, aspects of the bilateral and international agenda.”
On behalf of the Cuban people and government, and his behalf, he offered the best wishes to President Tebboune on the occasion of his birthday.
