Havana, October 19 - The President of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel, will begin a tour of European countries this Sunday, which will include official visits to Ireland, the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.
He will also attend the 18th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement, which will take place in Baku, Republic of Azerbaijan, on the 25th and 26th of this month.
