Guatemala President to Visit Cuba
Colom´s visit will contribute to strengthening historic ties of friendship and cooperation between the two countries, the official release says.

The Guatemalan President will hold official talks with Raul Castro and visit places of economic, social and historic interest.

It will be Colom´s first visit to Cuba after he took office on Jan. 14, 2008.

During his stay in Havana, a park dedicated to the friendship between Guatemala and Cuba will be opened.

Bilateral cooperation includes Cubans teaching Guatemalan how to read and write with the "Yes I Can" method, following Colom´s wish to declare Guatemala illiteracy free in 2009.

Over 1,530 Guatemalans have already learnt how to read and write with the Cuban method so far.
