Cuba is going to send more university professors to Angola

The cuban ambassador to Angola, Esther Armenteros, announced that her country will send more university professors to Angola. The initiative is part of the cooperation between the two countries.


The ambassador, who was speaking during a visit to the "Angola e Cuba" Public School, in the municipality of Cazenga, Luanda, took stock of how many cubans are already in Angola.

"We have 2000 cuban cooperators here in Angola. Our cooperators are throughout the country, mostly doctors, but we also have teachers in different schools and units across the country and in all provinces. But our collaborators, at the moment, are in Higher Education", he said, in statements to Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA).

On the occasion, the director of the school "Angola e Cuba" underlined that the possibility for his students to learn spanish is the best news of this cooperation.

"The best symbol is the spanish language for our students," he said.

Tomás Bica Mumbundo, municipal administrator of Cazenga, highlighted the relations between Cuba and Angola.

"In the field of education, as you might guess, "Angola and Cuba" is the first educational facility in which Cuba had its stamp very directly. At the same time, many angolans were protected, at the time, by then-President José Eduardo dos Santos, sent to Cuba and today they are doctors. Our gratitude to the Cuban people is eternal," he said, quoted by RNA.
