The general director of Consular Affairs and Cuban Residents Abroad at Cuba’s Foreign Ministry (DACCRE), Ernesto Soberón, said recently that the Conference has the peculiarity that after its end, participants will be able to socialize their results with those who could not participate.
He pointed out that 4th Conference is an opportunity to share the experiences of Cuban who live in several countries, how their participation has been in the main battles that our country is waging, and their fight against the United States blockade.
“We will talk about pending issues, the concerns they may have regarding immigration policy and politics in general,” the diplomat said on the Mesa Redonda television program.
