Havana, November 24 (RHC) – Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, said on Friday in Havana that his country wants to accompany Cuba in its socio-economic transformations.
In statements to reporters on the last day of his official visit, Sanchez noted that Spain seeks to play an active role in economic changes underway on the island.
He thanked President Miguel Diaz-Canel for the welcome he received in Cuba and highlighted the results of his stay, including the signing of memorandums of understanding to strengthen political and cultural ties, as well as a business forum held during the visit.
Sanchez said his trip to Cuba brings an end to what he called an ‘anomaly’, alluding to the 32 years without a visit by a Spanish learder, since former Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez traveled to Havana in 1986.
The Spanish prime minister said he expected this to be the first of many official visits to Cuba and a preview of the one, next year, by the Spanish monarchs, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Havana.
