UMNO Secretary General highlights Cuban Covid-19 vaccines

Kuala Lumpur, Apr 21 (Prensa Latina) Secretary General of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan, on Wednesday highlighted the five Cuban Covid-19 vaccine candidates.

All countries must be independent in the production of their own vaccines, Maslan said after a meeting with Cuban Ambassador to Malaysia, Florentino Batista Gonzalez.

Topics of mutual interest were discussed at the meeting, and the state of bilateral relations to strengthen the ties between both nations through this important political organization was reviewed.

Batista Gonzalez used the meeting as an opportunity to update the secretary general on the results of the 8th Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba, which recently ended in Havana.

The website of this organization adds that Batista considered UMNO the backbone of this nation from Southeast Asia.
