Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev said his country will help Cuba receive oil and its derivatives, following restrictions imposed on the island by the United States (US), to prevent access by oil tankers.
“I think we will find other methods to help Cuba receive oil and its derivatives,” Medvedev said.
Medvedev, who held an official visit to Cuba on October 3 and 4, added that Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel reiterated during his negotiations his country’s willingness to pay all debt to the Eurasian nation.
Similarly, the Russian Prime Minister said that Russia aims to cooperate with all Latin American countries, although Cuba is its traditional partner.
During the two-day visit to the Greater Antilles, Medvedev visited the first horizontal oil well created in Cuba, located in Boca de Jaruco, in the north of the country, and which has the workforce of Russian and Cuban state-owned companies .
