Putin Welcomes Cuban VP to Moscow

MOSCOW – Russian President Vladimir Putin met on Wednesday in Moscow with Cuban First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel to discuss assorted bilateral issues, Russian media reported.

Diaz-Canel, who arrived in Moscow from Belarus, on Thursday will meet with Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev to discuss joint energy and industrial projects involving the two nations, the Russian government said.

At that meeting, Russian-Cuban cooperation in trade, the economy, pharmaceuticals, space, tourism, education and high technology will also be discussed.

The two countries cooperate closely in many areas and are trying to move forward with assorted joint projects, particularly in the areas of transportation, communications, pharmaceuticals and the peaceful use of nuclear energy in the Special Development Zone at the Cuban port of Mariel.

In recent years, Russia has tried to reestablish the tight political and economic cooperation it enjoyed with Havana during the Soviet era and, in fact, two years ago it forgave 90 percent of the communist island’s debt with Moscow.

A year ago, as soon as the rapprochement with the United States was launched, Cuban President Raul Castro traveled to Moscow to meet with Putin to strengthen the strategic alliance between the two countries.
