“This visit is to greet and thank President Raul Castro, Commander in Chief Fidel Castro and the Cuban government for all the help they have given us”

Ramos-Horta said he plans to talk with the med students from his country that will return after a successful training in Cuba.

In the last two years our Medicine students have returned to our country to gain in experience from local reality, he added

“Our country is like a small Cuban village, very similar, therefore coming to study to Cuba and return doesn’t cause a any cultural conflict”

In September 2009, the first 18 student group arrived in Dili, East Timor capital, after training for six years in Cuban universities

They joined efforts with a Cuban 193-member medical brigade working in East Timor, as part of a cooperation program started in 2004, which has taken over 700 Cuban health professionals to the Asian country.
