Havana, October 18 - The governments of Cuba and Mexico ratified on Thursday the will to continue developing political-diplomatic dialogue and to broaden economic-commercial, investment, and cooperation relations.
Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez, confirmed this on Twitter, where he commented on the results of the 'cordial meeting' between the president of his country, Miguel Díaz-Canel, and his host Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
López Obrador welcomed the visitor in the Patio of Honor of the National Palace before holding a private meeting.
In his usual morning press conference, Lopez Obrador said that the visit by his Cuban counterpart was important 'because the Cuban people and the Mexican people are brothers'.
Shortly after arriving in the northern nation, Diaz-Canel expressed his joy for 'returning to the much-loved Mexico, a country so closely linked to the history of Cuba and of all Latin America', now as the new president of the Republic, after being elected last October 10.
The Cuban president was back in Havana in the early hours of Friday. He was welcomed at Jose Marti International Airport by Communist Party leader, Raul Castro. (RHC)
