The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, developed on Monday an intense work schedule in the Russian capital, Moscow, regarding his second day of his official visit to the Eurasian nation as part of an international tour.
The Cuban delegation paid tribute at the tomb of the Soviet Unknown Soldier on the outskirts of the Kremlin, a must-see for all foreign dignitaries visiting the Russian capital.
Likewise, the Cuban president, who is also the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, held a meeting with Guennadi Andreyevich Zyuganov, general secretary of the Russian Communist Party.
However, the highlight of the day was the reception offered by the vice president of the Security Council of the Russian Federation and former president of the nation, Dimitri Medvedev.
Medvedev thanked the Cuban president for his visit to Russia, while describing this visit by Díaz-Canel as intense, in which he will hold, he recalled, talks with President Vladimir Putin.
According to the former Russian president, the sanctions against Cuba and Russia “cannot slow down economic cooperation between our countries and the ties between our parties.”
For his part, the Cuban president described this as an opportune moment to visit Russia, also in response to President Vladimir Putin’s invitation to inaugurate the monument erected in memory of the Commander in Chief, Fidel Castro Ruz, whose death an anniversary is commemorated next Friday.
The next stop on the international tour of the Cuban president will take him to Türkiye and then to China.
