FOREIGN MINISTER Hugo Swire spoke of his “pride” yesterday in working with Cuba to beat Ebola after becoming the first British minister to visit the socialist country for almost a decade.
The Tory said he was “very happy” to end the diplomatic blockade with a three-day visit to discuss trade and global health.
Mr Swire said: “Although we naturally have our differences, we work together where we can, including on the response to the Ebola epidemic, where Cuba is playing a vital international role.
“Cuba is sending hundreds of medical professionals to UK-run facilities in Sierra Leone on top of staff already in that country and in Guinea. I am proud that we can work together on such an important cause.”
Mr Swire also met Fidel Castro’s niece Mariela Castro to hear about Cuba’s work on improving the rights of its LGBT citizens.
