DILI: Timor-Leste and Cuba said on Wednesday they would continue to work with each other in strengthening the Timorese people’s access to healthcare and supporting exchange opportunities for medical personnel in line with an agreement the two countries reached in 2003.

During a meeting with Ambassador of Cuba in Timor-Leste, Grisel Alina Aldama Innis, Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Coordinator of Social Development and Rural Community Development Mariano Asanami Sabino, said the two countries agreed to continue their cooperation to at least December 2024.

The partnership began in a meeting between former President of the Republic of Cuba, Fidal Castro, and the then Presidents of the Republic, Xanana Gusmao held in Kuala Lumpur, in 2003.

Cuba has sent tens of doctors and specialists to Timor-Leste to work in the country’s health centre, including training more than a thousand Timorese doctors and 29 medical personnel, a statement said.
