Mexican Navy’s Training Ship Visits Havana

HAVANA – The Mexican navy’s training ship, Cuauhtemoc, arrived over the weekend in the port of Havana for a one-week visit as part of its 2011 Mediterranean Training Cruise, Cuban media reported.

The ship, which is based in the Pacific port of Acapulco, stopped in Balboa, Panama, before arriving in the Cuban capital.

The Cuauhtemoc will anchor in 17 countries, including the United States, Italy, Israel, Turkey, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Greece, Spain and Colombia on its training tour.

Gunners at the Colonial-era La Cabaña fortress fired a 21-gun salute as the ship entered Havana harbor, the official Prensa Latina news agency reported.

Mexican Ambassador to Cuba Gabriel Jimenez Remus welcomed the Cuauhtemoc’s commander, Capt. Marco Antonio Vila, and its crew to Havana.

The Mexican sailors will tour the Cuban navy headquarters and meet with Havana’s mayor during their visit to the Cuban capital.

The crew is also scheduled to tour historic sites, cultural venues and to place a wreath at the busts of Cuban poet Jose Marti and Mexican revolutionary hero Benito Juarez.

The Cuauhtemoc, which was constructed by Spain’s Astilleros de Celaya S.A. shipyard in the early 1980s, previously visited Cuba in November 1994 and April 2008, officials said. EFE
