Moscow, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) The president of the State Duma (Lower House of the Russian Parliament), Vyacheslav Volodin, met on Wednesday with Cuban Deputy Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas, the press office of the legislature reported.

According to the Duma information, “Volodin met with the Cuban Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment on Wednesday, during which he said that the ties between the two countries are developing and expanding in all spheres.”

At the parliamentary level, he recalled, the Commission on Cooperation between the State Duma and the National People’s Power Assembly of Cuba, which met for the first time last year in Havana, is functioning.

“Our presidents, Vladimir Putin and Miguel Diaz-Canel are making every effort to ensure that relations are of a strategic nature and are based on friendship and the principles of trust and mutual respect,” Volodin remarked.

For Moscow, he said, the ties with Havana stand out among other things for being “time-tested and challenging.”
