Cuba opens to resuming medical brigades to Bolivia

LA PAZ (AFP) – Cuba is open to resuming medical brigades to Bolivia, Senior Diplomat Danilo Sanchez said, after abruptly withdrawing them under previous president Jeanine Anez, whose right-wing government suspended relations with the communist island.

“We are open to listen to proposals, requests; I believe that we can and have many possibilities to cooperate in many areas: science, education, health, indeed we are very interested in cooperation in the commercial sector, in the investment sector,” the charge d’affaires said on Monday.

Sanchez was asked by the local press about the return of the medical brigades following his meeting in La Paz with the head of the Chamber of Deputies, Freddy Mamani.

The medical teams were abruptly withdrawn in January after Anez came to power.
