Cuba will send a group of doctors to Rwanda under a health cooperation agreement signed Monday by the foreign ministers of both nations.

Cuba’s Prensa Latina news agency offered few specifics of the agreement, signed by Charles Murigande of Rwanda and Felipe Perez Roque of Cuba.

The accords also call for Cuba to offer medical and other scholarships to young Rwandans wanting to study on the island.

Murigande arrived in Cuba late Sunday and will leave Thursday. The two countries established diplomatic relations in 1979.
