Monrovia, October 27, 2020.- The Cuban Chief of Mission in this West African nation, Mercedes L. Martínez Herrera, and the Advisor to the Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Americas, Honorable Maxwell P. Vah, held an exchange in which they discussed various topics of the events in both nations and highlighted the bilateral links between them.
They also discussed topics of interest related to the current domestic political situation in Liberia, on the progress of preparations for the holding of the senatorial elections in the country, scheduled for December 8 this year.
The Caribbean diplomat regretted that her country, in addition to those challenges imposed by the current COVID-19 pandemic, was facing a greater one, which is the prolonged economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the US government more than half a century ago against Cuba, which has intensified to unprecedented levels in the midst of the pandemic and which is now being tightened with the recent measures approved by the Trump Administration. In this context, he described the gun attack against the Cuban mission in Washington, about which the White House authorities have not spoken, despite their anti-terrorist speech.
Issues of coordination of specific issues for the strengthening of the ties between both nations were addressed.
It was a positive meeting to deepen on other issues of our reality.
