Kingstown, March 1 (RHC)-- The First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel held a meeting on Friday with the prime minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley, in the framework of the eighth summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which is being held in Kingstown, capital of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

During the dialogue, the head of state conveyed to Mottley his country's interest in advancing in the commitments reached during his official visit to that Caribbean nation in 2022.

For her part, the Barbadian premier ratified the willingness to strengthen cooperation ties for the benefit of both countries, said Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez on social network X.

At the summit, the president reaffirmed Cuba's responsibility to strengthen peace and unity in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Díaz-Canel called for overcoming differences through dialogue and cooperation.

At the regional meeting, which commemorates the 10th anniversary of the proclamation of the region as a Zone of Peace, the Cuban dignitary assured that "to support peace is to defend the right of each people to freely choose its political model and its own path towards economic and social development".

He highlighted the honor it represents for Cuba that the signing of this emblematic document by the heads of state and government of the 33 countries of the region took place at the Havana Summit in 2014.

He described the proclamation as a hope for millions of people, whose main concern is survival in a world convulsed by violence and wars. (Source: Prensa Latina)
