Cuban President Meets Chinese Premier to Consolidate Bilateral Ties

BEIJING – Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel continued on Thursday his three-day visit to China with a meeting in Beijing with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang with the aim of consolidating bilateral ties.

During the meeting, Diaz-Canel told Li he wished for the new generations of Chinese and Cubans to continue to consolidate ties between their countries, according to a tweet by the Cuban foreign ministry.

Earlier, Diaz-Canel met with the chairman of the standing committee of the National People’s Congress, Li Zhanshu, and expressed his respect, admiration and love for the people of China.

The Cuban president was scheduled to meet his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping later in the day before concluding his visit.

Diaz-Canel began his official trip to China on Tuesday with a visit to the International Import Expo at Shanghai, and on Wednesday he met with Vice Premier Wang Yang.

In 1960, Cuba became the first Latin American country to establish diplomatic ties with the People’s Republic of China, which formally came into being in 1949.

China has traditionally supported Cuba in international forums such as the United Nations, where it has called for the lifting of the United States’ embargo against the Caribbean country.

In 2017, trade exchange between the two nations was valued at around $2 billion.
