The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Malaysia, YB Dato' Seri Diraja Dr. Zambry Abd Kadir, presides over the Malaysian delegation that arrived this Friday in Havana to participate in the Summit of the Group of 77 plus China.
The minister and his delegation were received today by the Director General of the General Division of Political Planning of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba, Ambassador Gustavo Machín Gómez.
The G77 plus China Summit is a global event that will take place in the Cuban capital between September 15 and 16, and will host delegations from around a hundred member countries.
Cuba assumed the Pro Tempore Presidency of the Group in January 2023, which was the first time that the Caribbean Island has led this negotiating bloc of developing countries and assumed the important commitment to consolidate the unity, presence and influence of the Group of 77 + China in the multiple and relevant multilateral processes to be held in 2023.
Although Cuba has never before chaired the Group, it has held the presidency of different Chapters: Geneva 2001 and 2010, Nairobi in 2005, Rome 1987 and 2001, with results recognised around the world.
