Russian Foreign Minister to meet with Cuban authoritiesHAVANA, Cuba, Jul 24 (ACN) Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived in Havana for an official visit to meet the main Cuban authorities.

His agenda includes a meeting with the Cuban authorities, including Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, in a meeting that plans to address a wide range of current problems on the global and regional agendas, according to a statement from the Russian government.
The document adds that both ministers will also discuss various aspects of bilateral cooperation, including issues relating to trade relations, economic, cultural and humanitarian.
He points out that work is currently being done to improve and update the legal basis of relations between Moscow and Havana and that another of the main topics of cooperation between the two countries is to develop an exchange in the field of education.
Lavrov arrives in Cuba as part of a tour that will also take him to Brazil and Suriname.
Before embarking on his tour, the head of Russian diplomacy told Latin American media that the U.S. economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba is an unacceptable attitude, and for almost 60 years those sanctions have been applied that at some point make them more flexible and then reinforce them.
With the activation of the third title of the Helms-Burton law, the United States demonstrated, once again, its contempt for international law and for its own laws that it intends to extend to other countries in an extraterritorial manner, he added.
In November 2018, the presidents of Russia and Cuba, Vladimir Putin and Miguel Díaz-Canel, respectively, met in Moscow and signed several agreements aimed at deepening relations between the two countries.
Tourism, rail transport, telecommunications and energy generation are key sectors in the commercial exchange between the two countries, which also have a high coincidence in the vision towards the different issues of the international agenda, the defense of peace and the role of international institutions.
