Roberto Morales Ojeda, Vice President of the Council of Ministers of Cuba, began today an official visit to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, as part of his tour of several Asian nations.
Morales Ojeda visited the National Health Institute of Pakistan on Tuesday, and held a fraternal meeting with its executive director, Aamer Ikram, who confirmed that health is a key field within the exchange between both countries, as well as a promising sector to continue expanding bilateral cooperation.
The Cuban VP and his delegation also visited the Pakistan Monument, opened in 2007, which represents the four provinces and three territories into which this Asian country is divided, and is a symbol of Pakistani culture and civilization, through its design similar to a lotus flower.
This activity was attended by coordinators of parliamentary friendship groups, senior officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a representation of Pakistani doctors graduated in Cuba.
Cuba and Pakistan established diplomatic relations in 1955, which were strengthened after the 2005 earthquake that affected that South Asian nation, when a group of Cuban doctors from the Henry Reeve brigade gave their solidarity in the Pakistani region of Kashmir.
