Lazo thanked the Serbian position in condemning the U.S. blockade, expressed Havana’s support for the territorial integrity of the Balkan nation and condemned attempts to disunite the country.
The Serbian Foreign Minister thanked the Cuban position and expressed the willingness of his people and government to continue supporting the sustainable development of Cuba.
The Balkan diplomat paid tribute to Fidel Castro at the Center that bears his name and announced that a mural will be unveiled in his country on August 13 on the anniversary of the birthday of the man he considered one of the great friends of the Serbian people.
