During the meeting, Bruno Rodriguez highlighted the potential to develop bilateral ties with Bolivia in the branches of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology
Bolivia’s Foreign Minister Fernando Huanacuni asserted that Cuba was a symbol of the dignity of all revolutionary processes in the continent and the world.
In a meeting with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodríguez, the Bolivian diplomat said that during his visit to the island he intended to draw up strategies for the future, because ‘the ideological aspect must be given concrete representation in the economic’.
In this regard, Rodriguez highlighted the potential to develop bilateral ties fundamentally in the branches of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
He expressed his admiration for the ongoing struggle by Bolivia against the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.
The Cuban minister recalled the fraternal relations between both countries, as well as the excellent state of it.
Regarding Bolivian maritime demand, Rodríguez said, quoting Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro: ‘We love Bolivia so much that if we could we will give a piece of sea.’
At the meeting held at the headquarters of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Huanacuni presented Rodríguez with a copy of El libro del mar, which contains the arguments of Bolivia to recover its access to the Pacific Ocean.
He also gave him a chuspa, a typical Bolivian bag used to carry the traditional coca leaf.
Both countries began cooperation in 2006 when Evo Morales assumed the presidency.
