HAVANA, Nov 22 (ACN) Chinese President Xi Jinping reaffirmed the eternal nature of the friendship between his country and Cuba while receiving credentials from the new Cuban ambassador, Carlos Miguel Pereira.
The leader of China reiterated his firm will to foster cooperation between the two socialist countries, no matter how difficult the international situation.
For his part, Pereira extended warm greetings from the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party, Raul Castro, and President Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, after ratifying the high priority that the Cuban state authorities give to friendship ties.
He highlighted the friendly nature of bilateral bonds and their extension to all fields, which is seen as a result of political trust, strategic dialogue, support and mutual understanding on many issues on the international agenda.
Both sides also referred to the celebration in 2020 of the six decades of the establishment of Beijing-Havana relations, marking a new milestone in the bilateral field, since Cuba was the first nation in the Western Hemisphere to recognize the then young People's Republic of China.
