The relations between Cuba and Venezuela preserve their effort to guarantee peace, solidarity and the defense of the Latin American peoples, just as they were forged in 1999 by the leaders Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez.
The cooperation agreements between the two peoples include objectives in the sectors of education and health mainly.
These nations use their diplomatic, governmental and commercial ties to face the growing offensive of interventionist policies dictated by the US to undermine their development.
