Mexico, Oct 31 – Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez arrived in Mexico for a two-day visit, after participating at the UN General Assembly, which again condemned the U.S. blockade on Cuba.
Upon his arrival at the Benito Juarez International Airport, Rodriguez was received by Deputy Secretary of Foreign Affairs Vanessa Rubio, and the island’s ambassador Dagoberto Rodriguez.
The Cuban minister’s agenda includes a meeting with his Mexican peer Jose Antonio Meade, and a lecture at the headquarters of the Foreign Ministry, among other activities.
Meade visited Havana last month, where he expressed the interest of the two nations for giving a new impetus to bilateral relations, a will the Cuban leaders also expressed.
The UN Assembly reiterated its rejection to the blockade, and demanded its lifting by 188 votes in favor, two against (the United States and Israel), and three abstentions.
Speaking at that session, Mexican ambassador Jorge Montaño acknowledged the Caribbean nation’s progresses in the pursuance of the objectives set in the Millennium Development Goals, despite the negative impact of that aggression it faces.
