Havana, December 8 (EFE). Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said on Wednesday that Cuba will continue to deepen the ties of “fraternity, cooperation and solidarity” with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
The Cuban foreign minister wrote on Twitter that every December 8 is celebrated as Caricom Cuba Day due to the decision of four Caribbean countries to establish diplomatic relations with Havana on this date in 1972.
“We are proud of our Caribbean identity and of the gradual development of political relations and cooperation guided by the principles of solidarity, fraternity, gratitude and full support,” he added in another message posted on the Foreign Ministry’s account.
Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago established diplomatic relations with Cuba 49 years ago, a decision that, according to Cuba, broke the regional isolation imposed by the United States.
Founded in 1973, Caricom currently consists of Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. EFE
Note to subscribers: The decisions of the Cuban authorities in recent months have decimated the Efe Mission team in Havana, where currently only two journalists can continue to do their work. Efe hopes to be able to regain her informational ability on the island in the coming days.
