Bolivian President Receives Cuba’s Highest Honor

HAVANA – Cuban President Raul Castro presented Bolivian counterpart Evo Morales with the Order of Jose Marti, the Communist-ruled island’s highest honor, after the two leaders met at Havana’s Palace of the Revolution.

Morales began his official agenda on Friday afternoon with the traditional laying of a wreath at the monument to Cuban independence hero Jose Marti in Havana’s Revolution Square and a tour of the adjacent memorial.

After the official welcome at the Palace of the Revolution, the two leaders held a private meeting in the company of their respective delegations to evaluate the current state of bilateral relations.

Castro and Morales later presided over the signing of a framework agreement aimed at promoting and developing mechanisms and programs for bilateral cooperation in different areas: the economy, health, education and culture.

Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca and the head of Cuba’s Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Ministry, Rodrigo Malmierca, inked that accord.

Finally, Castro bestowed the Order of Jose Marti on Morales in a solemn ceremony.

The Bolivian president, one of Cuba’s main political allies in Latin America, arrived in Cuba on Friday morning and is scheduled to return to his homeland on Saturday afternoon.

Morales’ most recent visit to Cuba was in August 2015, when he traveled to Havana for revolutionary leader Fidel Castro’s 89th birthday.

On March 14, Raul Castro conferred the Order of Jose Marti on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, whose government is the Caribbean island’s closest political ally.
