Tokyo, Jun 16 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s high prestige in health was recognized on Tuesday in Japan by political activist Ito Naoko, a diplomatic source said.
According to a statement from the Cuban Embassy in Japan, the recognition took place during the reception to Ito Naoko and a delegation of Japanese activists by Cuban Ambassador Miguel Angel Ramirez.
According to the text, the activist said the island’s diplomat that the international recognition of Cuban health personnel is an opportunity for both countries.
She noted that after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Havana in 2016, the Japanese government’s intentions to develop medical collaboration with Cuba were still in force, due to the mutual benefit of a health alliance between the two nations.
According to the information, both countries talked on future joint collaboration projects, such as the screening of Cuban films during the next edition of the Tokyo International Film Festival, to be held in November, if health conditions due to coronavirus pandemic allow it.
The communique that addresses the cultural issue specifies that the Japan Foundation was established in 1972 under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, an entity in charge of planning, directing, organizing, controlling and reporting on Tokyo’s foreign policy.
