Havana, Dec 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuba defends the principle of international cooperation without economic, political and social conditions that will imply interference in internal affairs or undermines sovereignty of a country.
Such principles are valid both for the collaboration received by Cuba as for the one provided by us to more than 180 countries, involving more than one million Cubans, says Magalys Estrada, general director of Economic Cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment Foreign (Mincex) of the island, reported today by the newspaper Granma.
International cooperation is a complement to the State’s effort to develop the country, and describes the one received by the Caribbean nation as a genuine sign of solidarity.
Estrada considers as very important, the emergency aid to natural disasters, similar to that received after Matthew’s hurricane hit several municipalities in eastern Cuba, refering to the immediate and precise response of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the mobilization of resources from the agencies of the United Nations system such as the World Food Program, the Children’s Fund, the Development Program and the Population Fund, together with aid from Japan and other governments, enterprises and international organizations.
Beyond the existence of several regulations related to this topic, among the fundamental tasks of 2017 stands out the culmination of the implementation of the legal and regulatory framework for economic and scientific-technical cooperation that Cuba receives and offers, in order to do more efficient use of resources, she emphasizes.
