Havana, Aug 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez reiterated this Wednesday his rejection of US attempts to sabotage Cuban medical collaboration in over 60 countries.
According to Rodriguez, the Trump administration’s policy in this regard pursues the purpose of seeking further pretexts to increase its hostile policy against Cuba, including the blockade imposed for over six decades.
The Foreign Minister tweeted in defense of the efforts of some 30,000 Cuban health workers, deployed mostly in Third World countries, and highlighted the international prestige of such efforts, which he described as a byword for solidarity and humanism.
US governmental representatives have repeatedly attacked Cuban collaborators who work in other nations, such as Venezuela, while criticizing the quality of Cuban professionals and their participation in social programs in different countries.
Since the 1960s, Cuban physicians and nurses have provided humanitarian assistance in response to natural disasters and health emergencies, or medical collaboration through agreements between governments in several latitudes.
Cuba’s international cooperation efforts also extend to other areas such as education, culture and sports.
