Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has lauded Cuba for training our medical students.
Some have graduates after successfully completing their programmes, others are continuing.
“I wish to offer my deep thanks to Cuba for the training of our medical students. More than ninety Solomon Islands medical doctors have graduated from Cuban medical schools and we expect this number to increase.
“We note with concern the 60 year-old economic embargo imposed on Cuba remains in place and we reiterate the call for the lifting of the embargo within the spirit and purposes of the United Nations Charter,” Sogavare said.
He echoed the above statement in his statement at the recent 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
