Buenos Aires, Dec 9 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel is visiting Argentina this Monday, where he arrived yesterday to participate in the inauguration of president and vice president-elect Alberto Fernandez and Cristina Fernandez.
‘We have already arrived in the beloved Argentina, Che’s first Homeland, to attend the inauguration of Alberto and Cristina Fernandez. Long live Latin America united,’ Diaz-Canel posted on Twitter after his arrival.
The Cuban delegation also includes Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, Foreign Trade and Investment Minister Rodrigo Malmierca and Cuban Ambassador to Argentina Orestes Perez, among other officials.
Diaz-Canel is one of the leaders invited to the presidential transition ceremony that will take place tomorrow, beginning in the National Congress and then in the emblematic Casa Rosada, where the president-elect will welcome the visiting delegations and also swear-in his entire Cabinet.
United by close and friendly relations and sustained bilateral ties, Argentina and Cuba are also united by a universal figure, the historic guerrilla Ernesto Che Guevara.
Relations between the two countries were established on May 12, 1909 and were interrupted in 1962.
