China has always developed relations with Cuba from a long-term strategic level and therefore, it prioritizes exchanges of mutual benefit
Song Tao, head of the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPCh) Central Committee, has met today with a delegation from the Cuban Communist Party (PCC) to analyze the excellent ties between the two organizations.
Jose Ramon Monteagudo Ruiz, member of the Party Central Committee and first secretary of the PCC in Sancti Spiritus, is leading the Cuban delegation, also composed of Gladys Martinez Verdecia, first secretary of the PCC in Pinar del Rio, and other provincial and municipal leaders.
According to Song, China has always developed relations with Cuba from a long-term strategic level and therefore, it prioritizes exchanges of mutual benefit.
Despite the geographic distance between the two nations, there is a closeness between both peoples because we share the same ideals and convictions, and this is what differentiates us in the bilateral relations with other countries, he said.
This country is always willing to share without reservation the experiences with the Cuban comrades about the reform and opening-up process, as well as the construction of socialism, the Chinese leader said.
Monteagudo thanked, on behalf of his delegation, the invitation to hold these meetings.
The Cuban leader gave an overview of the Party’s work in the process of updating the economic and social model of socialist development.
He also referred to the efforts the Cuban people have carried out to confront the U.S. government’s blockade policy, the effects of the international economic crisis and climate change.
The Cuban leaders will visit the provinces of Yunnan and Shanghai, where they will also learn about the activities related to the socio-economic development of these provinces.
