At a meeting at Havana’s Hotel Nacional de Cuba, Saudi Ambassador Faisal Falah Al Harbi considered it a pleasure to celebrate the national date “in a country that is distinguished by its notable stances.”
He stressed that Cuba has always supported Saudi Arabia in international issues, from its position in defense of just causes, just as the Arab nation maintains its position in favor of lifting the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States.
Both countries support each other at international forums and maintain close cooperation in several spheres, including health care.
“Cuban doctors have demonstrated their scientific and practical competence and, above all, their love for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have treated our patients with love more than with medicine,” the ambassador commented in the presence of Cuban Energy and Mines Minister Livan Arronte.
He also mentioned the existing agreements between the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources and the Saudi Fund for Development, from which a series of important projects have been implemented for Cuba’s benefit, he added.
According to the diplomat, Saudi Arabia is immersed in an expansion towards new horizons, “based on its strengths, on its privileged strategic location, on a strong and solid economy and on its deep Arab and Islamic roots.”
The Saudi nation plays a leading role in stabilizing energy markets and leading the next green era through its (Green Saudi Arabia) and (Green Middle East) initiatives.
