In a video message, the Cuban official talked at the international round table about the role of parliamentary parties in the development of cooperation between Russia and Latin America to ensure environmental and food security, environmental protection and the fight against dangerous infectious diseases.
Convened by the United Russia party and its chairman, Dmitry Medvedev, the meeting was attended by representatives of Latin American political parties and movements.
The exchange was considered by Polanco as a practical continuity of the international conference on Global Challenges of the 21st Century: the inter-party dimension, organized by the same party on December 1st, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of its foundation.
The representative of the island recalled that the first secretary of the Central Committee of the PCC and president of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel, attended the event, which was also held virtually.
In this regard, he stressed the importance of continuing the analysis of the global challenges that have a significant impact on Latin America, a region full of natural wealth, but the most unequal on the planet.
Polanco also expressed his concern about the impact of the environmental crisis, which is worsening and threatens the very existence of some of the smaller Caribbean islands, which may disappear in the coming years due to the increase in the level of the oceans and seas.
