On his Twitter account, the minister added that he received Egyptian Ambassador Mohamed Hisham Gamal Eldien Shuair, who will end his mission in Cuba.

Both countries established diplomatic relations on Sept.5, 1949, but several sources indicate that they were strengthened after Ernesto Che Guevara’s visit to Cairo in 1959.

On previous occasions, Anayansi Rodriguez, deputy foreign minister, said that during decades of bilateral ties, there have been important achievements in terms of political agreements and exchanges in areas of mutual interest such as the economy, trade, education and culture.

Recently, the chambers of commerce of Cuba and Egypt signed a cooperation agreement to boost new business opportunities in fields such as mining, transportation, renewable energies, internal trade, healthcare, education, among others.

Furthermore, Egypt supports every year the resolution presented by Cuba at the United Nations General Assembly to call for the lifting of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States.

Both nations are members of multilateral forums such as the Group of 77 plus China and the Non-Aligned Movement.
