Evo meets with President Diaz-Canel in Havana

The First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of Cuba, Miguel DĂ­az-Canel, received Evo Morales Ayma, President of the Movement towards Socialism – Political Instrument for the Sovereignty of the Peoples (MAS-IPSP) on Thursday morning.

During the fraternal meeting, they exchanged on the regional and international situation and challenges of Latin America. The former President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia expressed his unwavering solidarity with the Cuban people. DĂ­az-Canel thanked Evo for his messages of support and for the donation of food and medical supplies sent by the Bolivian government and people in August.

The twenty-ton humanitarian aid shipment included 16.5 tons of food, as well as biosecurity supplies and disposable syringes. Bolivia’s MAS government said the supplies were sent in support of Cubans facing the criminal and genocidal U.S. blockade, to which the Bolivian response is more internationalist solidarity.

Diaz-Canel tweeted that they highlighted “the role of social movements and progressive forces in Latin America to confront neoliberalism.” The meeting was attended by member of the Political Bureau and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno RodrĂ­guez Parrilla.
