Foreign, Immigration and Labor Minister of Dominica Continues Official Visit to Cuba

Havana, March 24.- Dominica's Foreign, Immigration and Labor Minister Vince Henderson continues his official visit to Cuba and is to meet on Tuesday with Foreign Trade and Investment Minister Rodrigo Malmierca.

The distinguished visitor met on Monday with Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez whom he thanked on the island's solidarity with his Caribbean nation in different fields.

During his meeting at the headquarters of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Henderson affirmed that his government will continue supporting Cuba at international forums and valued as excellent the friendship ties with the island in the last 30 years.
