Havana, April 12, (RHC), – France’s foreign minister Laurent Fabius is travelling to Cuba on Saturday, the first such visit in over three decades and a sign of improving ties between the European Union and Havana.
During his one-day visit, Fabius will meet his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez, with the aim of strengthening bilateral relations and increasing trade between the two countries.
Fabius will also meet with Archbishop Jaime Ortega and other prominent Cuban personalities.
The visit to Cuba by the French foreign minister takes place amidst efforts towards the normalization of relations between the European Union and Cuba, and after the decision adopted on February 10 by the Council of European Foreign Ministers to achieve an agreement on political dialog and cooperation with Cuba.
During his stay in Cuba, minister Fabius will inaugurate a Ubifrance office, a public facility supporting the development of French companies.
