During the meeting, the Cuban minister thanked Honduras for its position in international forums against the blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.
Velázquez described as very fruitful the exchange with the president, as well as those held with the president of Congress, Luis Redondo and other ministers such as Foreign Minister Enrique Reina and the Minister of Strategic Planning Ricardo Salgado. The meetings occurred in an atmosphere of friendship, solidarity and mutual understanding.
