Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, Cuban First VP Met with former Prime Minister of Saint Lucia
The leader of the parliamentary opposition in the sister Caribbean island said he deeply admires Cuba for its "greatness in giving without asking for anything in return", and mentioned the unconditional support given to his nation since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1979.

Machado Ventura for his part praised the unity and strength of the Labor Party of Saint Lucia and called it an example to follow by other peoples.

Both leaders talked about the agenda of the visiting delegation which will return to Santa Lucia on Sunday, March 23. Activities include a visit to the Infirmary School in Jaguey Grande, Matanzas, where young people from Saint Lucia study.

The visitors will also tour the oil refinery of Cienfuegos and the new community of petrocasas (houses built from oil derivates), a Cuba- Venezuela joint project, some 250 kilometers east of Havana.

Kenny D. Anthony had previously visited Cuba as Prime Minister in May, 2006. On that occasion, he and former Cuban President Fidel Castro held official talks.
