Beijing, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) Chinese officials highlighted the significance of the visit of Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel for the development of bilateral relations, traditional friendship and cooperation between both nations.
The academic Xu Shicheng told the Global Times newspaper that the visit is a reflection of the close ties of the communist parties of both countries, especially since it is taking place a month after the celebration of the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of China and the re-election of president Xi Jinping as its general secretary.
It also illustrates the mutual appreciation between peoples as well as the exchanges in commercial, medical and cultural matters.
The expert Pan Deng, on the other hand, highlighted the mutual support of Havana and Beijing in the international arena, the common position against hegemony, unilateralism and protectionism, and on issues of national interest.
He considered Cuba as an example of resistance in Latin America, in the face of pressures from the United States and also indicated that together with China they can help promote global recovery.
China confirmed on Monday the visit of Díaz-Canel to China between November 24th and 26th, at the invitation of Xi Jinping and in the context of an international tour with stops in Algeria, Russia and Turkey.
Although the details of the agenda have not yet been released, it is expected that during the official talks the parties will review the state of bilateral ties and plan new actions to strengthen them in the future.
