Dubai, June 24 (RHC) The authorities of Dubai, one of the members of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), expressed interest in the medical cooperation of Cuba, highlighted today the website El Correo del Golfo (“The Gulf Post Office”).
A statement from the government of that emirate says the director general of the Dubai Health Authority, Humaid al Qutami, received a delegation headed by the Cuban ambassador to the UAE, Roberto Blanco Dominguez, Prensa Latina reports.
Both parties explored the possibility of developing bilateral cooperation, the text states.
The two figures discussed the possibility of employing Cuban professionals (doctors and nurses) in health facilities in Dubai.
Al Qutami reiterated his interest in exchanging experiences with major health institutions around the world based on the changes that have taken place in the emirate.
According to El Correo del Golfo, the Cuban mission chief said that any partnership with Dubai would be an important opportunity to achieve common goals.
The United Arab Emirates and Cuba established diplomatic relations in 2002, but it was not until 2015 that the Arab country opened its embassy in Havana, and until 2018 that the Caribbean nation reciprocated by opening its own in Abu Dhabi.
