Kim Meets with Cuba’s Diaz-Canel for Second Time in Pyongyang before China Visit

SEOUL – North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un met for the second time on Monday with Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel as part of his Pyongyang visit ahead of his departure to China on Tuesday.

Kim received Diaz-Canel at the office building of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party, according to the state news agency KCNA on Tuesday.

The leaders discussed “the situation of their countries” and exchanged “honest and sincere views” on “the situation on the Korean peninsula and the international relations,” KCNA reported.

Diaz-Canel also met with the country’s honorary president Kim Yong-nam and visited Mangyongdae Revolutionary School.

In the evening, the Cuban president and his wife Lis Cuesta Peraza dined with Kim and North Korea first lady Ri Sol-ju, with whom they later attended the grand gymnastics and artistic performance “The Glorious Country,” a lavish display that glorifies the North Korean regime and its achievements.

During the three-day trip to Pyongyang, the leaders have wanted to stage the close ties of the countries on the basis of anti-imperialist independence and socialism.

As countries that in the middle of the last century laid the foundations of the state on communism, North Korea and Cuba have maintained good relations established since 1960.

The Cuban president concludes his visit to North Korea on Tuesday, from where he flies to China to participate in the China International Import Expo in Shanghai.

Diaz-Canel’s first international tour as president began on Nov. 1 and also includes Russia, Vietnam and Laos.
