In a message published on social networks, the president described the meeting with the Prime Minister of Vietnam, Pham Minh Chinh, as very fraternal. “We expressed mutual satisfaction for the excellent state of bilateral relations and the consolidation of high-level political dialogue, as well as the desire to strengthen ties of brotherhood that unite us,” he wrote.
The head of state held an exchange with Philip J. Pierre, Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, as part of his program in the high-level week of the 78th UN General Assembly.
In another message, the president announced the signing of the treaty for the Conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity beyond jurisdictional waters.
Díaz-Canel emphasized that Cuba’s delegation is aware of the prevailing need for the instrument, one of the most important negotiated during this century, to come into force as soon as possible. “This treaty, without a doubt, is a historic fact and an achievement of developing countries,” he added.
“It was an honor for Cuba to have assumed the coordination of the 134 member countries of the G77 + China during the last and decisive session of the Conference on Marine Biodiversity,” the president said.
