Statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
The virtual summit convened by the United States government on December 9-10, with prerecorded speeches from the guests and a totally manipulated agenda, was a demagogic exercise, with zero benefits for the international community and without any proposal to solve the most pressing problems of the world we share.
It is my distinct honour, in my capacity as Chairman of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), to address the People and Governments of CARICOM and Cuba on the Forty-Ninth Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between our Countries. Today reminds us of that symbolic and courageous historic act of Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago on 8 December 1972, that has evolved over the years into a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship based on solidarity.
Guyana, Georgetown, November 25, 2021. As part of the celebrations for the fifth anniversary of the physical disappearance of the Commander-in- Chief, Fidel Castro Ruz, the Cuban Embassy organized an event with the participation of Guyanese personalities, Cuban residents, members of the Medical Brigade, officials, and workers of the Diplomatic Mission.
