Cuban president arrived in Moscow on working visit

HAVANA, Oct 28 (ACN) The Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel arrived today in Moscow, where he will meet his counterpart Vladimir Putin to complete the final stage of his working visit to that nation.

Diaz-Canel was received by the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation, Sergei Ryabkov.

Both nations’ political ties have been strengthened with visits to Cuba by President Vladimir Putin in 2000 and 2014, by PM Dmitri Medvedev in 2008, 2013 and October this year, as well as visits by Army General Raul Castro to Russia in 2009, 2012 and 2015, and finally by Diaz-Canel in November 2018.

Russia is the last stop of a European tour started by the Cuban president last October 20, which included official visits to Ireland and Belarus, and participation in the 18th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement, in Baku, Azerbaijan, last October 25-26.
