Fraternal meeting between the Chinese Premier and Fidel

On the afternoon on Sunday, September 25, compañero Li Keqiang, member of the Standing Committee of the Central Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China and Premier of the People’s Republic of China, paid a friendly visit to Comandante en Jefe, Fidel Castro Ruz, as part of an official visit to the island.

In a lively dialogue, the distinguished visitor expressed his satisfaction with his first visit to Cuba, his admiration for the patriotism of the Cuban people, and praised the island’s achievements in various fields. The leader of the Cuban Revolution and the Premier recalled the historic ties that unite Cuba and China, symbolized by the participation of fighters of Chinese origin during Cuba’s wars of independence and liberation, and the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries over fifty-five years ago, when the socialist character of the Cuban Revolution had not yet been declared.

In particular, they shared opinions on the current international situation, the complexities, dangers and challenges and the need to preserve human life and peace.

In the fraternal meeting, Fidel and Li Keqiang expressed their confidence that this visit would strengthen cooperation and friendship between the two parties, governments and peoples.
