British Secretary of State Philip Hammond on Cuba Visit

HAVANA - Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of the United Kingdom Philip Anthony Hammond, the first British Foreign Secretary to visit Cuba after the revolution in 1959, Thursday stressed the "favorable" evolution of the bilateral ties and called for its expansion.

"The United Kingdom has always had relations with all countries and we have seen a favorable development in the evolution of our bilateral relations," said the British Secretary of State to his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez, with whom he met at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the island.

Hammond also considered that there is "great potential to further improve the relations between the UK and Cuba in the coming months and even years," in areas such as trade and tourism.

Rodriguez pointed out that for Cuba, relations with the UK are a "priority" as with Europe and underlined "significant" progress on bilateral relations in culture, sports, trade, investment and tourism.

In addition, he highlighted that Cuban-British ties are in a "promising" moment with huge potential for development and thanked the UK contribution on progress with the European Union to sign an agreement on political dialogue and cooperation.

On the same day, the UK Secretary of State signed four Memoranda of Understanding to strengthen cooperation in the fields of culture, energy, higher education, professional financial services.

Hammond told reporters that these are "specific" areas in which both parties consider that they can "expand and develop" bilateral relations.

He reiterated UK's position in favor of the lifting of economic embargo imposed by the United States on Cuba and stressed that "this remains the stance of our EU colleagues."
