Pellicer pointed out that Cuba is now in better conditions to go ahead with its economic updating program aimed at the development of its internal capabilities and to encourage investments from abroad.
He also commented on the difficult situation the nation has gone through in the last two years, due to the tightening of the U.S. blockade and the measures adopted because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The diplomat explained to Mikati that, thanks to developing its own five vaccine candidates against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus Cuba is once again able to open up to the world with guarantees for the health of its citizens.
He also pointed out the possibilities of establishing collaboration mechanisms between Havana and Beirut in the health sector and for the production of vaccines and other medicines.
In another part of the dialogue, Pellicer thanked the head of the Government for the support of the authorities in the performance of his duties and expressed his wishes for a future of peace and prosperity for the Lebanese people.
