Syria and Cuba signed on Thursday a framework agreement on cooperation between the Syrian Health Ministry on the one hand and the Cuban External Trade and Foreign Investment Ministry and the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Industry Group (BioCubaFarma) on the other hand.

Syria-Cuba-health-agreement 2The Cuban Minister Rodrigo Malmierca Diaz said the agreement is a “modest contribution on the way to look for other potentials to build a strategic partnership” in the various areas of the health sector between the two countries and not just in the medicinal field.

“It’s our duty to provide all forms of help to the Syrian people in light of the current ordeal they are going through,” he added.

Malmierca Diaz’s remarks were echoed by Health Minister Nizar Yazigi, who described the agreement as a starting point for wider cooperation in the health domain, including in transferring biotechnology in both directions and exchanging of medicines, expertise and research.

Earlier on the day, Minister Yazigi met with Vice President of the Council of Ministers of Cuba Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz who affirmed that Cuba’s support to Syria under the terrorism war waged against it is firm and that Havana is serious about offering all forms of support and aid to Damascus.
