Bridgetown, Dec 6 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel today described the 8th Caricom-Cuba Summit, to be held in this capital, as a gathering of brothers in the region to strengthen ties of friendship.

From his official Twitter profile, the Cuban leader also mentioned that this space will consolidate the expressions of mutual support, solidarity and cooperation for the welfare of the peoples of the Caribbean Community.

On the other hand, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez assured that this scenario will ratify principles of brotherhood, gratitude and help, envisioning common challenges and collaboration, ‘which guide our fraternal relations and the everlasting commitment to a United Caribbean’.

Diaz-Canel will attend this meeting that commemorates the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties, on December 8, 1972, between Havana and four independent territories in the area: Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.

The meeting of the bloc, made up of 15 non-Spanish-speaking island and continental states, will also celebrate the two decades of the Caricom-Cuba´s Day, established since December 8, 2002, when one of these events was held for the first time in the largest Antillean island.

On that occasion, the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, said about the decision made by Bridgetown, Georgetown, Kingston and Port of Spain: ‘it constituted a fundamental step towards breaking the diplomatic and commercial blockade of Cuba in the region and a breakthrough against isolation.
