Havana, Sep 12 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez affirmed on Saturday that his country honors its commitment to South-South cooperation through solidarity in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘The Henry Reeve Brigades, inspired by those principles, support and save lives,’ explained Rodriguez on Twitter, referring to the Day of South-South Cooperation, created by the UN General Assembly in 2012.
The Foreign Minister recalled that countries commemorate the Day of South-South Cooperation in a context worsened by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Cuban authorities sent over 40 medical brigades to some thirty countries of the Henry Reeve International Contingent of Specialized Doctors in Disaster Situations and Serious Epidemics, created in 2005 by the leader of the Revolution Fidel Castro.
Among other goals, collaboration among developing countries seeks to boost and strengthen the self-sufficiency of States by increasing their creative capacity to find solutions and technological capacities to development problems and formulate the necessary strategies to address them.
