Cuba among countries recognized by the FAO

ROME, June 16—.The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) today recognized 18 countries for their exceptional results in combating hunger, among them various Latin American nations.

These were Cuba, Venezuela, Guyana, Nicaragua, Peru and St. Vincent & the Grenadines, which have reduced by half or more the estimated figures of undernourished persons in 1990-92.

Milagros Carina Soto, Cuban ambassador to Italy and Rome-based international bodies affirmed to Prensa Latina that the prize is in recognition of the Cuban Revolution’s policy for the well-being of the population. For the Cuban people it is an incentive in terms of the effort and decisiveness with which they have worked for decades toward a more just country, in spite of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States. The ambassador also noted that it is in recognition of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, “who has given so much attention to agricultural development to ensure that we are better and share what we have.”

Other nations recognized were Armenia, Azerbaijan, Djibouti, Georgia, Ghana, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, Samoa, Sao Tome & Principe, Thailand, Turkmenistan and Vietnam.
