CHEN Zhili, state minister of the People’s Republic of China, highlighted her visit to Cuba as successful.
Minutes before traveling to Mexico, she informed Granma that she had met on three occasions with President Fidel Castro Ruz, including the interview at the 2006 University Congress.
“Our delegation,” she added, “is advocating that this land should become steadily more prosperous,” while she expressed her confidence in the further consolidation of relations between the Chinese and Cuban peoples.
Education Minister Luis Ignacio G�mez, who bade farewell to the delegation at the Jos� Mart� International Airport, noted that this visit is at the highest level received from the People’s Republic of China in the educational sphere.
“That has allowed us a wide interchange on essential issues such as the possibility of Chinese young people studying the Spanish language in Cuba, and our students traveling to the sister republic to study Chinese and other specialties,” he affirmed.
“I consider it to have been a highly significant visit,” he stated, adding that relations had become more fortified.
