Cuban leader Raul Castro sent a message to his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko Friday congratulating him on reelection, said the Foreign Affairs Ministry (MFA) on its website.
In the message, Castro stated "his will to strengthen and expand the friendship and cooperation ties between the two countries."
Cuba and Belarus established relations after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Both nations have strong economic, political and collaboration ties.
Thousands of Belarusian children have received medical care in Havana under the program for victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
