Even the toughest sanctions are not capable of holding back the development of Russia and Cuba, which has gained invaluable experience living under an endless stream of restrictions. This was stated today, November 21, by Deputy Head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Chairman of United Russia Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting in Moscow with Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel.
“The world is very complex, our countries are under an endless stream of sanctions and restrictions. And in this sense, we have something to exchange, the experience that Cuba has accumulated is invaluable,” Medvedev said.
As the politician emphasized, "no sanctions are able to restrain the development of Cuba and the Russian Federation."
“Of course, we will continue our good contacts, enrich economic, educational and other ties between our countries, develop party cooperation between the Communist Party of Cuba and the United Russia party,” he assured.
The deputy chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation added that during the visit of the President of Cuba "a variety of issues will be discussed" both at a meeting with the head of the Russian state and during conversations with parliamentarians.
“Such multifaceted, full-fledged contacts and consultations are evidence of good, friendly relations between our countries, which have been going on for many decades,” Medvedev said.
Diaz-Canel arrived in Moscow on November 19. The program of his official visit includes talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and participation in the unveiling of a monument to the leader of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro.
