The vice-president of the State Committee of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), Choe Ryong Hae, is carrying out an intense agenda in Cuba, where on Wednesday he held talks with the authorities to strengthen bilateral relations.
The North Korean leader is on a working visit to the island and was received yesterday by the first vice president, Salvador Valdes, with whom he reviewed the ties between both countries.
Choe also met with the host foreign minister, Bruno Rodriguez, during which they discussed international issues as well as bilateral matters.
According to the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the meeting took place in a fraternal context, where the visitor and Rodriguez â€˜agreed to highlight the bonds of brotherhood and fraternity that unite peoples, parties and governments’.
Cuba and the DPRK have maintained relations since 1960 and currently have agreements for cooperation in various sectors, including education and agriculture.
