Diaz-Canel in Jamaica for CARICOM meetingMONTEGO BAY, Jamaica, Jul 5 (ACN) At eight o'clock in the morning, local time, the President of the Council of State and Ministers of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, arrived as a special guest to Jamaica that hosts since yesterday for three days the XXXIX Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

This is the second visit that Diaz-Canel makes to another nation, something that undoubtedly entails special symbolism, since Cuba and the Caribbean countries are related by common historical roots of struggles for freedom and mutual solidarity.

The Cuban president, along Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez were received at the airport by the President of the Senate of Jamaica, the Honourable Thomas Tavares-Finson, who, minutes before the meeting, declared to the press that "Jamaica is very happy and proud" to welcome the President, especially on the occasion of the meeting of the leaders of the Caribbean community.

Tavares-Finson further stated that: "Jamaica and Cuba have a long history of friendly and cordial relations. This is, said the President of the Jamaican Senate, a relationship that dates back hundreds of years.

Cuba, he emphasized, is an integral part of Jamaica's development, for the help and assistance it has provided to that country over the years in areas such as the development of medical services and education.

It is very important to continue the relationship between Cuba and the other Caribbean countries, said Tavares-Finson, that the Cuban President can exchange with the Caribbean leaders so that they can get to know each other and establish relations in order to strengthen and continue our relations.
