FAO praises Cuban aid to others
The UN Food and Agriculture Organization representative in Cuba, Francisco Arias, praised the island's cooperation with that organization on Monday, in programs destined to support other nations.

In his interview in Granma Internacional newspaper, Arias considered Cuba a close collaborator of that international entity and referred to the agreement through which FAO can include 200 Cuban technicians for those projects.

That work is mainly developed in Africa, South America and the Caribbean, and there is an interest to increase the number of Cuban participants to 300, he noted.

The FAO expert expressed gratitude to the government for the firm support as well as a strong bilateral institutional relationship.

Cuba is an FAO member, and as of the 1959 Revolutionary triumph, the country has developed joint projects in fishing, forestry and research.

Arias confirmed that his next destination is Venezuela, from where he will support joint initiatives from that South American country with Cuba in the framework of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA).
