HAVANA, October 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovich had a meeting with the leader of Cuba’s revolution Fidel Castro.
Yanukovich told reporters on Saturday that Castro “is very interested” in politics and economy and is thinking a lot about what is happening “in the entire world.” Fidel Castro thinks much about the world economic crisis and its impact on the global situation and ways of overcoming it.
The sides discussed cooperation between Ukraine and Cuba, including that in micro biology and treatment of serious illnesses. During the meeting, the two leaders had on-line conference calls with medical researchers.
“Fidel Castro sent his greetings to the people of Ukraine and wishes for successful overcoming of all obstacles on its way,” Yanukovich said.
Since 1990, Cuba has been providing a special programme for children, who suffered during the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Yanukovich met with doctors and patients of a clinic and expressed gratitude to Cuba for the assistance it provides. He stressed that Ukraine is interested in continuation of the programme and would allocate financing for support of the programme. By now, over 22,000 Ukrainians have received free treatment there.
