Sheikh Abdullah concludes successful visit to Cuba

(Havana) – Cuba and the United Arab Emirates agreed to strengthen diplomatic ties and bilateral cooperation during an official visit to the Caribbean island nation by the UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
During his 24-hour stay, H.H. Sheikh Abdullah met with Cuban authorities, signed two agreements, and inaugurated the UAE embassy in Havana, which he said was a clear sign of the consolidation of the ties established by the two countries in March 2002.
“I am sure that the next few years will witness the prosperity of our ties,” Sheikh Abdullah said during his official meeting with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez, with whom he signed an agreement on air services between, and beyond, the territories of the two nations, in order to facilitate the broadening of opportunities for international air transport.
During the meeting, Rodriguez reaffirmed his government’s support for Arab peoples in their struggle to maintain their independence and territorial integrity.
According to official sources, the two foreign ministers concurred that the opening of the UAE embassy is an important step forward in bilateral ties and will permit closer follow-up of questions of mutual interest.
Sheikh Abdullah also met with the first vice president of the councils of state and ministers, Miguel Diaz Canel. The two officials confirmed the good state of bilateral ties and the possibilities for cooperation on the economic, trade and financial fronts.
