Poland has offered to cooperate with Cuban authorities to restore and
revitalise monuments.

"Poland is interested in cooperating with the authorities of Cuba and
its institutions in the field of renovation and revitalisation of
monuments," Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said during a
meeting with Eusebio Leal, director of the restoration programme of Old
Havana.
On the last day of his visit to Cuba on Tuesday, Waszczykowski discussed
the development of cultural cooperation and promotion of Polish culture
in the Cuban capital.
The discussion also covered renewing cooperation between Poland and Cuba
on issues of monument restoration and drawing on the experience of
Polish experts, as well as making use of laser techniques in the
restoration of Havana monuments.
Waszczykowski also met the Archbishop of Havana, Juan de la Caridad
Garcia Rodriguez, and visited the Salesian Centre for Social
Communication, which is involved in social and educational activities
for young people. The Polish Embassy in Havana regularly cooperates with
the centre.
This was the first visit by a Polish foreign minister to Cuba in over 30
years. (rg/pk)
