The diplomat further stressed that Monaco and Cuba share similar views on several issues and pointed to the quest for peace in today's unstable world, the global fight against terrorism and the decisive role human resources play in achieving sustainable development.
The Cuban ambassador, for his part, stressed that Cuba and Monaco have long maintained fruitful contacts in several fields of common interest.

He said: “It has not been easy for any of us, but both Monaco and Cuba have managed to carve a niche for itself on the world map.
