He emphasized that culture, as an inseparable part of diplomatic work, allows for the development of greater understanding between peoples and governments, with a multiplying effect on politics and economic relations between different countries. He also added that culture and its exponents can be used to reach audiences and interlocutors that are sometimes inaccessible through official or traditional channels.  He also commented on the presence of culture in Cuba's foreign policy and its revolutionary diplomacy, as well as on the role played by Cuban artists and intellectuals in Cuban diplomacy.
