Cuba and United Kingdom extend bilateral cooperation

Cuba and the United Kingdom strengthened bilateral cooperation relations after signing in Havana four memoranda of understanding (MOU) during the official visit here by British secretary of state for foreign and commonwealth affairs, Philip Hammond.

The MOUs aim at strengthening cooperation links in the areas of energy, higher education, culture, finances and professional services. Hammond is the first British foreign secretary to visit Havana after the 1959 revolution. He was welcomed by Cuban foreign minister Bruno Rodriguez, who said that it is a priority for Cuba to maintain relations with Britain and with the rest of European nations.
