Sri Lanka Appreciates Medical Scholarships Granted by Cuba


New Delhi, Oct 24 (Prensa Latina) Cuba is the only country that offers medical scholarships to Sri Lanka, the Deputy Secretary of the Ministry of Education, K. R. Uduwala, confirmed today.

In a meeting with Cuban Ambassador Andres Marcelo Gonzalez, the official thanked Cuba for the possibility for young people from his country to be trained as professionals, especially in medicine.
