Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel congratulated the new Bolivian President Luis Arce after his inauguration.

On Twitter, the President quoted Arce when he said, 'I raise my eyes and see that a better Bolivia is possible'.

The Cuban head of state had already congratulated the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) after its victory in the elections last month.

Congratulations to MAS, which has recovered at the polls the power that was usurped by the oligarchy, with the OAS's complicity and the imperial leadership. Cuba shares joy for the triumph of #LuisArce. The Bolivarian ideal is reborn', wrote the President at that time.

Recently, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez also congratulated President-elect Luis Arce.

Not being able to attend for reasons beyond our control, we send our solidarity to the brotherly Bolivian people and support the government elected by popular will,' Rodríguez wrote on Twitter.

On Sunday, Luis Arce was sworn in as President of Bolivia in a solemn session at the Plurinational Legislative Assembly, after the MAS's electoral victory last October 18, while David Coquehuanca was previously sworn in as vice president.

The ceremony was attended by international leaders, elected authorities, and representatives of the Plurinational Legislative Assembly, among other guests.

Before the protocolary acts, representatives of social organizations performed traditional ceremonies.
