It was a cordial exchange in line with the existing fraternal relations between both countries, which will turn 47 this year.
The ambassador updated her host on the implementation of the US blockade, tightened during the Covid-19 health crisis, the obstacles it imposes on Cuba’s economic and social development and its extraterritorial nature, which violates international law.
