According to the diplomat, the common vote of African countries at the United Nations against Washington’s financial, economic and commercial blockade, and increased cooperation will contribute to making the efforts to surrender Cuba useless.
Hendrik Goagoseb pointed out that the triumph of the Cuban Revolution was an inspiration for Africa’s emancipating struggles, in which the Caribbean island participated actively.
He highlighted Cuba’s humanitarian and selfless support with its own resources, in terms of medical cooperation and education, and thanked Cubans for their involvement in the joint battle for sovereignty and progress in Africa.
That assistance, which has been uninterrupted for more than four decades, has covered academic training, because most people were illiterate and it was necessary to repair the damage caused by the war.
The ambassador underscored Cuba’s medical collaboration with his country and the training of more than 250 Namibian medical students in Cuban universities
He noted that Namibians consider Cuba a neighbor and a sister. In our Parliament, where there are several opposition parties, there is no division when Cuba is mentioned.
Hendrik Goagoseb pointed out that Namibia and Cuba collaborate in such sectors as fishing and agriculture, and have signed agreements between local governments, and on cultural cooperation and the production of medications and vaccines.
