China for strengthening solidarity and cooperation with Cuba

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi reaffirmed his country’s willingness to deepen solidarity and cooperation with Cuba, ratifying that both countries are “good friends, comrades and brothers,” official sources reported today.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the diplomatic chief made these pronouncements during bilateral talks with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodríguez, at the start of his agenda this Monday at the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly ( UN).

Wang pointed out that the two socialist countries enjoy great trust in each other, close communication at the level of their heads of state and solid friendship.

He expressed Beijing’s desire to further consolidate fraternal ties with Havana and thanked it for its position of unconditional support in the defense of sovereignty, territorial integrity and other issues of importance to national interests.

Wang said that China supports Cuba’s efforts to speed up development, protect its independence and make new achievements in building socialism.

He advocated that the two territories advance in the strategic articulation, further promote cooperation in the context of the Belt and Road initiative, and expand exchanges in sectors such as agriculture, tourism and renewable energy, among others.

Likewise, he asked to transform high-level political trust into practical results of cooperation, added the official note.

Apart from speaking with the Cuban minister, the Chinese diplomat also had meetings with the foreign ministers of Nicaragua, Ethiopia, France and Pakistan, reviewed the state of bilateral ties with all his interlocutors and also analyzed issues on the international scene.

Since last Sunday, Wang has been visiting the UN headquarters in New York to attend the 77th session of the General Assembly and will be there until the 25th.

Wang will hold meetings with his counterparts from the Brics group (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), the quartet of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, and the troika of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Likewise, he will talk with the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres; the president of the General Assembly, Csaba Korosi, and leaders of other diplomatic missions.
