Havana, Cuba, Nov 4.- The King of Lesotho, Letsie III, affirmed to be pleased with his visit to Havana, at the Jose Marti International Airport, where he was saw off by Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Marcos Rodriguez, on Thursday evening.
The African king, who had previously visited Cuba in 2007, noted that his second visit shows both nations’ willingness to strengthen the existing friendship bonds and cooperation relations that date back from 1979.
He mentioned that the people of this small country have been favored from the existing relations with Cuba due to cooperation programs in the fields of health and sports.
King Letsie III, who arrived in Cuba on Monday on an official visit, had a positive meeting with Cuban President Raul Castro Ruz on Tuesday, in a warm and friendly environment where they discuss topics of common interests.
During his visit, the King and his accompanying delegation laid a flower wreath at Jose Marti’s monument at the Revolution Square, and paid tribute to African heroes, among other activities.
