Cuban envoy to Pakistan resents Planning Minister’s ‘disrespectful’ remarks

Islamabad: Cuban envoy to Pakistan, Zener Caro, recently voiced his resentment against Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal’s “disrespectful” remarks about his nation.

At a media talk on Sunday, Iqbal had said that Pakistan wanted to become a strong country for which it needed a strong economy at the global level, adding that he did not want Pakistan to turn into Cuba or North Korea, reports The Express Tribune.

Responding to the remark, Zener Caro tweeted: "Fortunately, Minister Ahsan Iqbal's (@betterpakistan) disrespectful mention of Cuba in his press conference in Lahore does not represent and has nothing to do with Pakistanis' true respect and deep affection for Cuba."

The Pakistani minister clarified: "Excellency! We have deep respect for the people of Cuba & our deep affectionate relations with Cuba. We can’t forget how Cuban doctors played a heroic role in the aftermath of the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan. My remarks were only in the context of foreign policy."
