Havana, September 9 (RHC)—The Second EU-Cuba Joint Council, chaired by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union, Federica Mogherini is meeting Monday in Havana.
The gathering will review the implementation of the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement (ADPC) adopted in December 2016, in Brussels.
The Agreement relaunched of relations between Cuba and the European Union, scrapping the so-called Common Position , which, since its adoption in 1996, was firmly rejected by the Caribbean Island, due to its interfering, selective and discriminatory character.
Earlier on Monday, Foreign Minister Rodriguez wrote on Twitter that the 2nd Joint Council will contribute to boosting positive existing links.
“We will discuss the implementation of ADPC; the development of political dialogues; trade, investment and cooperation and their potential; and the Helms-Burton Law and its extraterritorial effects,” the Cuban top diplomat said.
