Cuba, San Marino and EU for closer rapprochement

Politburo member and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz received on Friday afternoon the Prime Minister of the Republic of San Marino, Luca Beccari, and the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell Fontelles, who are visiting our country.

In an exchange with the Secretary of State for International Relations, International Economic Cooperation and Telecommunications of San Marino, Marrero Cruz confirmed his interest in continuing to develop bilateral relations in political, economic and trade terms.

An important step is to be able to have you here to be able to exchange information about these relationships that we have had and that we want to continue to develop. This meeting aims to identify new ways to support and take these connections to a higher level, he added.

“Here they can count on us, with the help of the government. I also want to thank you again for the support you have given us in the international arena,” the Prime Minister repeated, stating that despite the geographical distance, both countries share the principles of defending independence and self-determination.

Similarly, he reaffirmed the need to further strengthen friendly ties, especially with San Mariano, but also with the entire European Union. Speaking about these relations, Marrero Cruz thanked for the support provided in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

For his part, the head of the government of the Republic of San Marino noted that the potential for cooperation between the two countries is open. “We can be available to each other with our experience and abilities, always respecting friendship based on common values. We are different countries, we live in different places, but we all have important principles that we support and respect internationally.”

Subsequently, Marrero Cruz exchanged views with the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the Vice President of the European Commission, whom he thanked for voting “as a whole” in favor of the resolution that Cuba is submitting to the UN General Assembly condemning the blockade.
