Quito, May 24 (RHC)-- Cuban Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel, and his Ecuadorian counterpart Jorge Glas, renewed both their countries' commitment to integration amongst all Latin American and Caribbean states around existing integration mechanisms like the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our Americas (ALBA).
Vice presidents Díaz-Canel and Glas held official talks Tuesday in Quito, where Díaz-Canel is leading the Cuban delegation to the swearing-in ceremony of new Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno. The two dignitaries discussed bilateral ties and other regional and international issues of common interest.
Ecuadorian vice president Glas thanked Cuba for its support for recovery efforts in the Ecuadorian coastal region, which was hard hit by a massive earthquake in April 2016 that claimed over 600 lives and caused severe economic damage.
The Cuban vice president confirmed Cuba's unwavering support for the Ecuadoran people and the Citizens' Revolution started by former President Rafael Correa, as well as the Caribbean nation's determination to strengthen economic, commercial and cooperation ties with the Andean nation.
