Cuba and Lesotho to Further Strengthening Cooperation Ties
During official talks held Monday at the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Felipe Perez Roque thanked the African nation for its solidarity and friendship, and its permanent and firm attitude at the United Nations in favor of the lifting of the US economic, financial and commercial blockade against Cuba.

Meanwhile, Kenneth Tsekoa passed on the kind regards sent by King Letsie III to the Cubans authorities, and he also offered his condolences for the damages inflicted on the Caribbean nation by three recent hurricanes.

The African top government official highlighted his government’s interest in intensifying mutual collaboration, particularly in the fields of health care and sports.

Attending the talks were Tebello Metsing, permanent secretary of the Lesotho’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the ambassador of that African nation to Cuba Motsega Senyane. Attending for Cuba were deputy foreign ministers Yiliam Jiménez and Marcos Rodríguez, as well as other officials.

At present, a group of 15 Cuban professionals are offering their services in Lesotho in the areas of sports and health care in an effort to contribute to the social development of that nation which has two million inhabitants. Cuba and Lesotho established diplomatic relations in June 14, 1979.
