Caballero, permanent Cuban representative to Algeria and simultaneously to El Aaiun accepted an interview with the National Saharan Radio, on the 30th anniversary of having established diplomatic ties with this territory in north-western Africa.
"Cuba is proud of maintaining diplomatic relations (established on January 30, 1980), of friendship, solidarity and cooperation with people that have maintained their spirit of resistance throughout all these years, he said.
He also recognized the Saharan people's persistence in "their legitimate aspirations of exercising their full right to self-determination," and guaranteed "permanent support," from the Cuban Revolution for their cause "until the final victory."
He also recalled that Havana maintains a multidisciplinary medical brigade in that territory that contributes to the efforts by the Saharan government to guarantee medical assistance to its people.
Thousands of young people from this Arab republic are studying in Cuban universities, from which physicians, engineers, technicians and lawyers have graduated. Many of them have arrived in the island at early ages.
The ambassador pointed out that in his visits to the camps of Saharan refugees in Algeria, the patriotic spirit of resistance and optimism to achieve a free, sovereign and independent nation has really moved him."
