Deputy Foreign Minister for Latin America, Rander Peña, received Cuban Ambassador in Caracas Dagoberto Rodriguez, at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where they reviewed the bilateral agenda for this year and several contemporary global issues, according to a press release from the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry.
In early February, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro met at the Miraflores Palace with a Cuban delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister Jorge Luis Tapia.
Also present at the meeting was Cuban Minister of Agriculture Ydael Perez, as part of a working agenda to review the development of the strategic alliance between the two countries.
On October 30, 2000, revolutionary leaders Fidel Castro (1926-2016) and Hugo Chavez (1954-2013) signed the Venezuela-Cuba Comprehensive Cooperation Agreement, a genuine expression of the will of both nations to develop reciprocal relations for the welfare of their peoples.
By virtue of these agreements, the Venezuelan and Cuban governments complement their capacities in the areas of food, education, health care, science and technology, in the face of the impact of the attacks and unilateral coercive measures by the United States.
