Santo Domingo, August 17 (RHC) -- Cuban Vice President Esteban Lazo fulfilled a busy diplomatic agenda during his recent visit to the Dominican Republic, where he met with the newly sworn-in president, Danilo Medina.
The dignitaries discussed the status of bilateral relations and
confirmed their interest to further strengthen diplomatic and economic partnership between the both Caribbean nations.
