Top Cuban and Angolan officials agreed here Tuesday to further bilateral relations, which they said are already "excellent."

Cuban First Vice President of the Council of State Jose Ramon Machado Ventura and visiting Angolan Vice President Fernando da Piedad Dias dos Santos also discussed other issues of common concern, according to an press release issued after their meeting, which was also attended by other senior officials from both countries.

Dias dos Santos, arrived here Monday, is visiting the Caribbean island nation through Friday, with an aim to enhance bilateral cooperation in areas such as health, education and construction.

Cuban officials said the country's close relationship with Angola was marked by the participation of more than 300,000 Cuban volunteer soldiers in the struggles for the liberation of that African country and close collaboration in areas such as education and health.
