Cuba to Continue Aid to CARICOM

Lissette Perez

What does a new leader mean for the CARICOM region which depends heavily on Cuba for health, education and other forms of aid? According to Ambassador Lissette Perez, the regional assistance continues. Perez says that their cooperation with other countries is indicative of the Cuban values and culture and their support for Belize and other neighboring countries under the name of solidarity:

“This is part of the principle of the Cuban Revolution; the solidarity with others. The welfare of our neighbors is also to share what we have with others – this is the spirit among Cubans but we also try to educate our young generation in this sprit – to share what we have with others because this is the only solution for the world. And that is why we will continue our programme for cooperation with the region that for us CARICOM members are our priority for cooperation because it is our area. We share the Caribbean Sea, we have a lot of similarities, a lot of challenges and together we have to face these challenges. That is why we have to continue to offer our expertise, our scholarships, area of medicines, cooperation in same sectors and others. It depends on the necessity of our brothers and sisters of CARICOM but of course we will continue because this is, for sure, our spirit of solidarity that we will preserve.”
