Havana, SANA- Cuba showed readiness to meet all Syria’s requirements of medicine, Health Minister Dr. Nizar Yazigi said.
Yazigi told SANA correspondent in Havana, at the conclusion of his visit to Cuba on Saturday, that the Cuban officials expressed readiness to provide Syria with all its needs of medicine in appreciation of Syria’s support to Cuba during the unfair siege imposed on it.
He asserted that cooperation in the economic domains for establishing partnership between the two countries was also discussed during the visit.
Earlier on Thursday, Syria and Cuba signed a framework agreement on cooperation between the Health Ministry on the one hand and the Cuban External Trade and Foreign Investment Ministry and the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Industry Group (BioCubaFarma) on the other.
The Minister pointed out that Cuba is a pioneer country in the medicine industries as its factories are distinguished with quality and supervision which enhances desire to transport the biotechnology to Syria through partnership and establishing factories for producing the biological products.
Vice President of the Council of Ministers of Cuba Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz affirmed earlier during meeting with minister Yazigi that Cuba’s support to Syria under the terrorism war waged against it is firm and that Havana is serious about offering all forms of support and aid to Syria in appreciation of its support to Cuba during its plight.
