African Union Leader to Visit School of Medicine in Cuba

Nkosazana Dlamini-ZumaHavana, Oct 3 (Prensa Latina) Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, chairwoman of the African Union Commission (AU), will on Saturday visit the Latin American School of Medicine, where she will meet with young Africans who are studying in Cuba.
With this activity, the senior AU official will complete the intensive program of her official visit to Cuba, where she met with local authorities, including President Raul Castro, Parliament Speaker Esteban Lazo and Acting Foreign Minister Marcelino Medina.

During her meeting with Raul Castro on Friday, both leaders exchanged viewpoints about the ties of friendship, cooperation and solidarity between Cuba and the African nations.

They particularly highlighted the active participation of Cuban health professionals in the fight against the Ebola epidemic in African countries, and discussed other international issues.

During the meeting between Medina and Dlamini-Zuma, Cuba and the AU Commission expressed their willingness to strengthen ties through deepening dialogue and cooperation on issues of mutual interest, ratified by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.

As part of her agenda in Cuba, Dlamini-Zuma also visited the "Pedro Kouri" Tropical Medicine Institute, where she thanked the historic solidarity of Cuba with the African continent, especially its support with medical personnel to combat the Ebola epidemic, which affected Western Africa seriously.
