Cuba expresses desire to take Observer Status in the Pan-African Parliament.

The Republic of Cuba has expressed its desire to take observer status in the Pan-African Parliament in view of its consistent support to Africa and its distinct interest in the strengthening of African governance.
This was disclosed by Cuba’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.E Mrs. Anayansi Rodriguez CAMEJO .during a courtesy call by the President of the Pan African Parliament, Rt. Hon. Roger Nkodo DANG on the last day of the official visit to Cuba.
According to the Deputy Minister, a closer relationship with the continental Parliament was complementary to the existing ties with Africa, noting that Cuba already enjoys Observer Status in the African Union.
She says Cuba is ready to share its know-how with the continent in the fields of health and agriculture, to ensure its contribution is far more significant in the socio-economic development of the continent.
PAP President Nkodo Dang acknowledged and commended Cuba for its advancement and excellence in research, medical training and services.
He emphasized on the need for enhanced parliamentary diplomacy and cooperation between PAP and Cuba saying "Parliamentary cooperation could have a number of developmental spin-offs for our communities in a number of areas."
The two leaders had an exchange on the idea of proposing installation of an Honorary Consul in Central Africa to explore and pave way for the facilitation of the proposed collaborative efforts.
