Venezuelan Vice President visits Cuba

Havana, Mar 7 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela’s Vice President Delcy Rodriguez arrives today in Cuba on a working visit to discuss expanding bilateral links, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported here.

Rodriguez heads the Venezuelan delegation to 21st Cuba-Venezuela Joint Intergovernmental Commission, and as part of her stay on the island she will hold talks with authorities, among other activities.

Last January, Rodríguez met Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel, when she traveled to Havana at the head of a Venezuelan governmental delegation.

During the meeting, both leaders highlighted the excellent state of relations and discussed issues of mutual interest and the regional and international situation.

The Cuban president ratified his country’s solidarity with the Bolivarian Republic, while Rodriguez repudiated Washington’s decision to include the Caribbean nation in the unilateral list of States that allegedly sponsor terrorism.

The Vice President told to the press about an agreement on the creation of a bi-national observatory to confront unilateral, coercive and illicit measures by the United States and other countries.

He also referred to the benefits of the Anti-Blockade Law for National Development and the Guarantee of Human Rights, approved in Caracas last October 8.
