Cuban Vice President Esteban Lazo, who is visiting Tanzania since Tuesday, held official talks on Wednesday with his Tanzanian counterparts Ali Mohammed Shein.

During the meeting, both Vice Presidents reviewed the state of bilateral relations between both countries. Mohammed Shein recalled the historic friendship relations between his country and Cuba, of which the main inspirers were Cuban President Fidel Castro and Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, former President of the Republic of Tanzania (1964-1985).

Shein also thanked Cuba for its cooperation in the fields of education and healthcare, and he specially praised the work of the 23 Cuban experts who are providing medical services in several localities of Tanzania.

Esteban Lazo explained the main Cuban achievements and challenges facing the island and ratified his country's readiness to strengthen bilateral links.

On Thursday, Lazo and his delegation will travel to the Zanzibar archipelago, an autonomous part of Tanzania located off the coast of East Africa, in the Indian Ocean.

In Zanzibar, the Cuban delegation will be received by the President of that autonomous region Amani Abeid Karumeel, who recently visited Cuba.

Esteban Lazo is also scheduled to meet with Cuba medical brigade working there and to visit places of economic and historical interest.
