Gaborone, October 14: The Vice President Lt. Gen. Mompati Merafhe says Botswana attaches great importance to her bilateral relations with Cuba.
    
General Merafhe told the Cuban Ambassador to Botswana, Mr. Ramon Alonso Medina, who had paid a courtesy call on him this morning (October 14) that Botswana and Cuba have always enjoyed excellent bilateral relations since establishing diplomatic ties in 1977.
     
The Vice President said Botswana would always be indebted to Cuba for the latter's assistance in the area of public health, particularly in the country's fight against HIV and AIDS scourge, adding that the presence of Cuban health personnel in the country has been a tremendous relief to Botswana.
    
In response, Ambassador Medina expressed Cuba's interest in enhancing cooperation with Botswana in the areas of health, sport and agriculture.
