Cuba, Russia FMs hold talks on bilateral relations

Havana, Jan 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez held a telephone conversation on Thursday with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, about the state of the bilateral relations.

On his Twitter account, Rodriguez referred to the exchange of opinions, which also dealt with issues on the regional and international agenda.

Cuba and Russia have maintained a fluid economic cooperation in several fields, which is complemented by close ties in the political field.

In November, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed during the reception in which the Cuban Ambassador presented his credentials that Cuba is a reliable partner and bilateral cooperation has a strategic nature.

Putin highlighted the joint large-scale projects in the fields of energy, metallurgy, transportation infrastructure and medicine, where Cuba ‘has a leading position in several areas.’

Russia has shown permanent support for Cuba, not only in its condemnation of the economic, commercial and financial blockade the United States has imposed on Cuba for almost 60 years, but also in rejecting the coercive measures implemented by Washington.
