On Africa Day, she told Prensa Latina, ‘We have kept our collaboration and solidarity in a number of spheres for almost five decades.’

Cuba’s contribution to Angola’s independence was decisive in safeguarding its independence: more than 300,000 internationalist fighters and nearly 50,000 civilian collaborators came to this Western African country for 16 years (1975-1991), she stressed.

She added, ‘At present, we continue doing it with the presence of our collaborators, especially in the health and education sectors.’

For more than 45 years of relations, she said, 14 cooperation meetings have been held within the framework of the Joint Intergovernmental Commission, established on July 29, 1976, on the occasion of then President Agostinho Neto’s visit to Havana.

The ambassador also spoke about the African governments’ constant support for the fight for the lifting of the United States economic, financial and commercial blockade against Cuba.
