Havana-. The diplomatic representatives of Cuba and Canada called for strengthening economic, commercial, financial and cooperative relations between the two countries, the Antillean country’s Foreign Ministry said today.
In a hypothetical dialogue, the two parties highlighted the respect that characterized these relations.
The Director-General for Bilateral Affairs of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Emilio Lozada, and Sylvie Cesarato, Director General of the Canadian Global Affairs Department for Central America and the Caribbean, also reviewed the issues on the joint agenda.
This contact was a prelude to the new round of political consultations between the two countries.
According to the memorandum published on the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Cuban side expressed its thanks for the traditional Canadian support for the decision to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America on the island.
He also acknowledged the position taken by the government of that northern country regarding the application of Chapters Three and Four of the Helms-Burton Act, which strengthens this blockade.
On June 23, Cuba will submit to the United Nations General Assembly the resolution it submits each year to demand an end to the blockade imposed by the United States, and that in 2020 it had to postpone it due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
