Geneva, May 22.- Public Health Minister of Cuba Jose Angel Portal has rejected on Tuesday any kind of manipulation used to distort the real commitment and the solidarity principles of the Cuban medical cooperation in foreign countries.

In a forum parallel to the event and organized by Bolivia, Portal also gave a conference in which he confirmed Havana's commitment to share its experiences in the development of Primary Health Care.

In a bilateral meeting, Portal and his Bolivian counterpart Lilly Gabriela Montaño talked about sanitary cooperation between Cuba and Bolivia and agreed to undertake new projects.
