Cuba and Russia expand political cooperation

Moscow, May 8 (Prensa Latina) The first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and president of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel, and the chairman of the United Russia party, Dmitry Medvedev, reviewed the progress of bilateral political relations here on Wednesday.

At the meeting, both leaders expressed satisfaction with the results achieved so far between the political organizations and the potentialities of their work for their development in the future.

Russia has a warm attitude towards Cuba and its leaders. “Although it is brutally cold outside, this cold does not affect our warm relations. Again, we warmly welcome you to the Russian Federation,” Medvedev, who is also the vice president of the Security Council, said.

He asked Díaz-Canel to “convey greetings and best wishes to Army General Raul Castro.” “We have spent a lot of time together in different places. The firmness with which he defends Cuba’s positions has always been a symbol for us of how to fight for his country’s independence.”

The former Russian president wished the Cuban head of State a successful stay in Russia and congratulated him on the 64th anniversary of the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between the Soviet Union and Cuba.

Before the meeting, on the second day of his visit to Russia, Díaz-Canel paid tribute to the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, at the monument in his honor in Moscow’s Sokol district.

The Cuban president will also participate in the expanded meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council as an observer.
