Juba, Mar 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuba thanked South Sudan for supporting, every year, the United Nations resolution against the US blockade and is ready to strengthen bilateral relations, an official source informed on Thursday.

Havana’s Ambassador to Juba with residence in Addis Ababa, Jorge Lefebre, told Prensa Latina that he conveyed that message from Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel to his South Sudanese counterpart Salva Kiir Mayardit during the credentials presentation ceremony held on Wednesday.

Lefebre also highlighted the ties of friendship that unite Cuba with the youngest nation in the world that is preparing to hold its first general elections.

As part of the activities in Juba, the diplomat met with a representation of graduates of the medicine, pharmacy, and veterinary faculties in Cuba, who expressed affection and especially gratitude for the opportunity to have studied there.
