Angola eyes stronger military cooperation with Cuba


14:14, August 05, 2011

Visiting Angolan Defense Minister Candido Pereira dos Santos Van-Dunem said Thursday his country is interested in strengthening military cooperation with Cuba.

The defense minister said that his visit to the island "is part of the mutually advantageous cooperation between both nations, which has always been very deep."

"With our presence we are committed to a stronger and safer relation between the two governments, armed forces and the ministries of defense," he said.

During the visit to Cuba from Tuesday to Sunday, the defense minister is scheduled to visit military schools and units.

Over 300,000 Cuban soldiers participated in the Angolan struggle for independence, during which some 3,000 Cubans lost their lives.

Both countries have maintained strong cooperation, especially in health care and education.
