Cuba Seeks Expanded Ties With Syria's Regime

Thursday, September 1, 2016
Last week, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited Cuba to further expand ties with the Castro regime.

This week, Castro seeks to further expand ties with Syria's genocidal regime.

Wasn't Obama's new policy supposed to influence Cuba in the right direction?

Not a chance, particularly as they they view the U.S. President as a pushover.

Syria, Cuba Ratified Potentialities to Increase Relations

Cuba and Syria ratified the existing potentialities for expanding relations, as ambassador Rogerio Santana and Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade, Adib Mayyaleh, respectively, discussed here today.

During the meeting, the Cuban diplomat delivered Mayyaleh an invitation so Syria can participate in the Havana International Fair, scheduled for late October and early November.

During the meeting, the two officials exchanged ideas and opinions about such participation and the possibilities that companies from this nation are present in several areas of economy, among other issues.

They also expressed satisfaction for the recent arrival in this country of a first shipment of Cuban vaccines. This opens new perspectives to the historical ties between the two countries as of the policies set between the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and former Syria's President, Hafez Al Assad.

They also reaffirmed mutual support and solidarity from Cuba with Syria amid the imposed war and the anti-terrorist struggle against the barrage of disinformation from the Western powers.

Mayyaleh recalled his recent visit to Cuba, where he led a delegation from his country to assess the economic and trade exchanges and increase them on the basis of the excellent relations at the political level.
