President Díaz-Canel thanks nations´ support for opposing US blockade

Havana, Feb 13 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Tuesday thanked the new ambassadors from Malaysia, Dominica, Sri Lanka, Guatemala, Australia, Oman and Zambia for their governments' support for their struggle against the hostile and unjust U.S. blockade.

At the credentials ceremony, both the Cuban president and Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez expressed their willingness to successfully strengthen diplomatic relations with Cuba.

Leader Diaz-Canel welcomed Muhammad Radzibin Jamaludin, Malaysia´s ambassador to Cuba to whom he reminded that 2025 will mark half a century of diplomatic relations between the two nations.

Díaz-Canel then received Ian Charles Anthony Douglas, new ambassador of the Commonwealth of Dominica, a nation the Cuban leader described as a sister nation while he conveyed greetings to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

Anthony Douglas recalled how Cuba helped his country after the passage of the devastating hurricane in 2017 and then “its generosity” amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Admiral Damith Nishantha Sirisoma Ulugetenne of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka also presented his official credentials in Cuba, who praised that the two nations have kept bilateral and diplomatic ties since 1959.

Ulugetenne also recalled the invitation extended by his president´s invitation for Díaz-Canel to pay a visit to Sri Lanka.

Another new diplomat received at the Revolution Palace was Guatemalan Ambassador Luis Fernando Carranza, to whom Díaz-Canel reaffirmed Cuba’s support for his nation.

The president sent his greetings to his counterpart Bernardo Arevalo and indicated that he is aware of the situation in that country.
