Havana, Feb 26 (Prensa Latina) Officials from the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and Western Sahara's Polisario Front held talks on bilateral relations and the current world situation, local media reported on Friday.
According to Granma daily, talks between Jorge Cuevas, a member of the Secretariat of the PCC Central Committee, and Khatri Addouh, head of the Polisario Front, took place on Thursday.
They expressed satisfaction with the development of ties between the two parties, founded by historic leaders Fidel Castro and Mohamed Abdelaziz.
Addouh thanked Cuba for its solidarity, especially the education of hundreds of young Saharan youths, and the Caribbean island's constant support for his country's right to sovereignty.
He reiterated the Polisario Front's condemnation of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for almost six decades, which was tightened by the Trump administration (2017-2021).
The meeting was also attended by Angel Arzuaga, deputy head and coordinator at the Foreign Relations Department of the PCC Central Committe, as well as other representatives from both parties.
Cuba and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, proclaimed by the Polisario Front in 1976, established diplomatic relations on January 21, 1980, in order to keep excellent cooperation and fraternal relations, the Cubaminrex website reported.
