Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva will travel to Cuba to participate in the Summit of the Group of 77 and China, which will begin this Friday in Havana.
Official sources indicated that the presence of the president at the summit is another move in the current diplomatic agenda of the Brazilian government to join forces with developing countries and to balance the dialogue with the rich.

The Brazilian ambassador in Havana, Christian Vargas, confirmed on Wednesday to the Brazilian TV that Brazil and Cuba will sign cooperation agreements, which include the agricultural area and the energy transition. Vargas noticed that Lula da Silva will not make an official visit, but will attend the Summit sessions.

The diplomat also specified that the president of Brazil will hold meetings with his Cuban counterpart, Miguel Díaz-Canel, and other authorities, during his stay in Havana. Vargas spoke of the resumption of cooperative relations between the two countries, which were practically interrupted during the administration of Jair Bolsonaro (2019-2022).

The organizers of the Summit reported that it will be attended by dozens of heads of State and Government, as well as leaders of different level of organizations, including the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres.

The meeting of heads of state and governments is convergent with Lula’s foreign policy efforts to unify the interests and demands of the Global South.
