Palestinian Leader Arrives in Cuba to Meet with President

HAVANA – The president of the Palestinian National Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, arrived on Thursday in Cuba, where he will meet with the country’s new president, Miguel Diaz-Canel, on Friday during his two-day visit.

On arriving in Havana from Chile on Thursday night, Abbas was received by Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Rogelio Sierra, during which he did not make any statements to the press.

He will begin his official visit on Friday, which includes a ceremony honoring Cuban National Hero Jose Marti in the Plaza de la Revolucion in Havana and a meeting with Diaz-Canel in the nearby headquarters of the Cuban Council of State.

During his visit, Abbas will also go to the Latin American School of Medicine, where a group of young Palestinians is studying.

Cuban state news agency Prensa Latina highlighted in an article on Thursday the “unchanging” support of the country for the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and an end to the occupation of their territories by Israel.

Last April, the Cuban government issued a demand for a “just and lasting” two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which will allow the Palestinians to have an independent and sovereign State of their own, with the territories determined according to the pre-1967 borders and the capital in East Jerusalem.

Abbas will conclude his Latin America tour in Cuba on Saturday after having visited Venezuela and Chile, where he met with their respective leaders, Nicolas Maduro and Sebastian Piñera.
