Zimbabwean vice president is in Cuba on a three-day official visit to further strengthen relations between Havana and Harare.

Joice Mujuru left Harare Friday on a mission to explore areas of new cooperation, The Herald reported on Saturday.

Mujuru was accompanied by Health Minister David Pagwese Parirenyatwa, other ministers, senior ruling party and government officials.

During the visit, Mujuru and her delegation will meet their Cuban counterparts to explore areas of further cooperation, said the report.

She will also tour sites of cultural and scientific significance.

Her visit is an expression of the excellent relations existing between the two governments and peoples, and will also provide an opportunity to discuss the regional and international situation.

Havana has been helping Harare with doctors who work in government hospitals, particularly in the rural areas.

Cuba has also trained thousands of Zimbabwean mathematics and science teachers under a government-to-government deal.
