UNITED NATIONS, September 22.—UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon today described Cuba’s achievements in completing the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) as impressive.
Ban Ki-Moon expressed that recognition in a meeting with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, who participated in the MDG Summit that ended on Wednesday.
Regarding those goals established in the year 2000 to be reached by 2015, both parties agreed on the need to strengthen political will in order to realize them, according to an official note circulated by the UN.
In the interview, Ban Ki-moon saluted the island’s impressive progress with respect to the MDGs, and expressed his appreciation for the aid that Cuba is giving Haiti, devastated by an earthquake this last January.
They also discussed climate change and other humanitarian issues, according to the release. (PL)
