The VIII Cuba-CARICOM Summit will be held on December 6 in Barbados.
Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel began a tour of Caribbean nations on Saturday, which will include his participation along with several ministers in the VIII Caricom-Cuba Summit to be held in Barbados next week.
The president announced on his official Twitter account that he will make official visits to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados and Grenada, countries he considered brothers of Cuba, united by “close ties of friendship and a history of support in the most difficult times”.
The president said that together with several ministers, he will participate in the VIII CARICOM Summit (Caribbean Community-Cuba), to be held in Barbados, and said that a united and supportive Caribbean is our only way forward.
“Together with several ministers, we will also participate in the VIII CARICOM-#Cuba Summit, which will be held in beloved Barbados. As Army General Raul Castro said, a united and supportive Caribbean is our only path. Let’s thank and strengthen this common history”.
The president recalled in another message that, after Cuba was diplomatically isolated after the United States and the Organization of American States (OAS) forced Latin American nations to break their ties with the island, only Mexico had maintained the link.
“Fifty years ago, four newly independent Caribbean nations changed that history. To commemorate it, we will be in Barbados”, added the Head of State.
