Wellington, September 24th, 2019. In a courtesy call payed by Ambassador Mario Alzugaray, the Governor General, Dame Patsy Reddy, confirmed New Zealand's interest in exploring ways to further improve bilateral relations, in areas of interests for both nations.
The Cuban diplomat highlighted the importance that Cuba attaches to links with New Zealand, based on mutual respect and trust, taking into account that both are small and distant nations that have managed to maintain mutual attention, with practical results in bilateral cooperation and on issues of mutual interest.
During the meeting, both parties exchanged on various topics of international news. This was an auspicious occasion in which the diplomat addressed the current state of relations between Cuba and the United States, with special emphasis on the intensification of the economic, financial and commercial blockade against our country and detailing the impact and scope of the blockade and the latest measures taken by the current administration.
The meeting took place within the framework of the farewell activities of the Cuban diplomat, who culminates his mission after four years of work in the South Pacific nation. (Embacuba NZ).
