No one better than our young and dynamic minister Scindia to open new horizons of cooperation between the two countries, he stressed.

According to the head of Indian diplomacy, he was looking forward to this visit to Cuba, which began on Thursday.

We invited Rodriguez to visit India next month, so I expect to welcome him in New Delhi, he pointed out.

Our ties are historic and excellent, and we discovered that they also have a potential to continue advancing, he stated.
