Expensive comrade Díaz-Canel!

I’m very glad to see him once more in Moscow.

Within the three years since our final assembly right here, relations between Cuba and Russia have continued to develop steadily.

The intergovernmental fee is working. The nineteenth session of the intergovernmental fee was not too long ago held. We have now developed and created a complete plan for cooperation between governments, and numerous joint initiatives are deliberate to be applied till 2030.

We have now an exquisite alternative to debate every little thing with you, what has been performed recently, what needs to be performed in at this time’s troublesome situations; in actual fact, they’ve most likely by no means been easy.

that the Soviet Union and Russia have all the time -even today- supported and proceed to assist the Cuban folks of their battle for independence, for sovereignty. We have now all the time opposed every kind of restrictions, embargoes, blockades, and so forth.

We have now all the time supported Cuba on worldwide platforms. And we see that Cuba takes the identical place in relation to our nation, in relation to Russia.

All that is the results of the standard friendship based by comrade Fidel Castro, and at this time you and I unveil a monument to him. For my part, the monument is superb. I do not know if he preferred it or not. I can not seem to assist however prefer it. The truth is, it is a good reminiscence of him, a real murals. It’s so dynamic, every little thing strikes, advances, and unquestionably the picture of the fighter has been created.

I actually keep in mind our private encounters with him, all the way down to the main points. He was a superb particular person. I used to be struck, I keep in mind, the second we first met – in his workplace and after lunch, in a free method, we mentioned the present scenario that has been growing on this planet since then – I used to be very stunned by his immersion within the particulars, in nuances of info, that occurred fairly removed from Cuba, however he knew and will analyze every little thing that was taking place on this planet. It was very fascinating and helpful for me to have had these conferences with him.

On the idea of this strong friendship, in fact, taking into consideration the present situations, we should transfer ahead and strengthen our cooperation. And I’m very glad that we now have that chance. Welcome!
