Angolan President Eduardo Dos Santos was seen off on Sunday at Varadero international airport, in the Cuban western province of Matanzas, by the island’s First Vice President Raul Castro Ruz.
The farewell ceremony was also attended by Cuban Western Army Chief, Leopoldo Cintra Frias, the Cuban ambassador to Angola, Pedro Ross Leal and Angolan citizens living in the island.
Dos Santos arrived Saturday in Varadero, one of the main seaside resort centers in the island, where he was briefed on the development of tourism in Cuba by Minister of Tourism Manuel Marrero.
He had previously held a friendly meeting with Cuban President Fidel Castro, to whom he manifested his affection on behalf of the Angolan people.
During his four-day visit to the island, Dos Santos met with a number of high-ranking Cuban officials and signed several bilateral cooperation agreements in the fields of education, healthcare, energy, construction, tourism and sports.
