Declaration of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba rejects, in the strongest possible terms, the US State Department’s certification of Cuba as country that is not cooperating fully with the United States counterterrorism efforts, published by the Federal Register of that country on May 25, 2021.
The Secretary General of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka, Dr. G. Weerasinghe sent a message of congratulations to his Cuban counterpart on his recent election as First Secretary of the Cuban Party and acknowledged the services rendered to the party as well as to his people.
The message highlights the legacy and teachings of Fidel and Raúl, which will serve Díaz Canel to give continuity to his historic mission.
Likewise, the continuity of solidarity with Cuba's struggle for its sovereignty, independence and its inalienable right to development is ensured.
