Cuban president highlights fraternal ties with Grenada

Saint George, Nov 8 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Thursday highlighted here the ties of brotherhood that unite his country with Grenada, on the occasion of his official visit to this Caribbean nation, where he will end his tour of the region.

The Cuban president tweeted that he met on Thursday with the leader of the New National Party, Keith Mitchell, whom he thanked for his constant condemnation of the U.S. blockade and for his solidarity with the Cuban people.

During his stay in Grenada, Diaz-Canel confirmed the common will to strengthen bilateral cooperation and work together for Caribbean unity and integration, at meetings with the president of the Senate, Dessima Williams; Leo Cato, speaker of the House of Representatives; and Governor General Cecile Ellen Fleurette.

He also spoke here with collaborators, Cuban residents, friends and members of the Cuban embassy to Saint George.

Diaz-Canel began his Caribbean tour in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines on December 3, and attended in Barbados the 8th CARICOM-Cuba Summit, held within the context of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of relations with several nations of the area.

During his visit, he held official talks with his hosts and met with parliamentary leaders, members of the Cuba solidarity movement, academics, businessmen and government officials.

The establishment of diplomatic relations with Jamaica, Guyana, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago on December 8, 1972, put an end to U.S. attempts to isolate Cuba from the region.

Over the years, collaboration with the Caribbean community has focused on key areas such as health, education, agriculture and fighting climate change.
