Cuban President holds bilateral meetings with world leadersHAVANA, Cuba, Sep 25 (ACN) The President of the Councils of State and Ministers of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, held several bilateral meetings with world leaders, as part of his collateral agenda of work in New York, where he attends the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN).

After delivering a speech at the Peace Summit, there was a fraternal meeting between the Cuban head of state and the delegation that accompanies him and the representatives of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela at the LXXIII Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
According to a report from New York, quoted by Cubadebate, the Cuban head of state met with the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, to exchange on bilateral relations and cooperation between the two countries.
Cuba and Iran strengthened their cooperation in the political field and in international relations, where there is convergence, as well as in the field of economic development and in sectors such as health, research, education, medicines and medical technology.
Diaz-Canel also held talks with Lenin Moreno, president of Ecuador, on issues of bilateral interest to both nations.
In recent years, Havana and Quito have strengthened relations and have cooperation programs in various areas, such as health and education.
The Cuban President arrived in New York last Sunday heading a large delegation and has an intense agenda that includes a meeting with Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary General, as well as bilateral meetings with leaders from other countries.
Upon his arrival, the Cuban leader assured that at the UN he will ratify the denunciation of the Cuban people against the aberrant policy of the blockade imposed by the United States on the island more than 55 years ago.
Diaz-Canel will also take part in the high-level meeting commemorating the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons and will hold a meeting with friends of Cuba at the Riverside Church in Harlem, where the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro was welcomed in 1960.
