Visiting Salvadoran Foreign Minister Hugo Martinez said here that the relations between his country and Cuba are at an all-time high, the official Cuban daily Granma said Monday.

At a press conference, Martinez said that during his meeting with Cuban leader Raul Castro, they discussed several important issues of common concern, including the integration of economies in Latin America and the strengthening of cooperation in health and education between the two countries.

Earlier on Saturday, Martinez inaugurated the Salvadoran embassy in Havana and signed a principal agreement on scientific and technological cooperation between the two countries with his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez.

According to Granma, it was the first official visit to Cuba by a Salvadoran foreign minister in more than five decades after the rupture of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
