MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Russia is interested in building up naval cooperation with Cuba, Russia’s Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu said at a meeting with Cuba’s Deputy Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas.
Shoigu tanked Cuba for hospitality Russian ships enjoyed while visiting Havana’s port.
"We are interested in building up cooperation in the naval sphere," Shoigu said.
The outlook for military-technological cooperation between Russia and Cuba will be the theme of a separate discussion at a meeting of the bilateral commission concerned.
"Of course, our military-technological cooperation is a special subject. It’s been developing fast and in a very positive fashion. We will be discussing all that at a meeting of the commission for military-technical cooperation," Shoigu said.
He recalled that Russia had accumulated vast experience of training Cuban military personnel.
"This aspect of partnership has very good prospects. We will be prepared to furnish assistance in training Cuban military further on," Shoigu said.
"Our contacts at the Defense Ministry are becoming a good tradition," he concluded.
