Kazan, February 21.- The president of the National Institute of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation (INDER), Osvaldo Vento Montiller, spoke today at the meeting of high sports authorities and distinguished visitors, organized in the run-up to the I Juegos del Futuro (Games of the Future).

Ministers, diplomats and guests of honor gathered at the Kazan University of Sports and Tourism, a remarkable infrastructure created to host the 2013 World Universiade.

Vento Montiller was among the speakers at the meeting. In his words, he stated that it is an enormous honor for Cuba to participate in the I Future Games and in this meeting of high sports authorities.

We appreciate Russia's support for making Cuba's presence possible, which ratifies the solid relations of friendship and cooperation between our nations, he said.

We reaffirm our willingness to create a working group on sports within the framework of the Cuba-Russia Intergovernmental Commission for Commercial, Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation. We consider it important to promote the exchange of experiences between specialists from both countries, as well as to ensure that Russian athletes travel to events on the Island and Cubans do so in Russia, added the Island's director.

We ratify our support for the upcoming BRICS and friendship games, in which we will participate with top-level figures. And we take advantage of this framework to request new support to continue inserting our athletes in digital events, explained Vento.
