Cuba & Caricom continue to strengthen relationship

During the Cuba-Caricom Day commemoration, yesterday, December 8, Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Marcelino Medina recalled that history unites Caribbean countries, and reiterated Cuba’s commitment to continue strengthening the ties of friendship shared. Cuba-Caricom Day commemorates December 8, 1972, when four Caribbean countries (Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago) established diplomatic relations with Cuba despite U.S. efforts to isolate the country. The date was agreed upon by the Caribbean Common Market and Cuba during a Summit held in Havana, in 2002. Medina recalled that the valiant decision made by those first four countries paved the way for others to establish relations with the revolutionary government in Cuba, which was under attack from the United States. Ambassador Charles John Corbette from the Commonwealth of Dominica, spoke for the Caribbean community, noting that while Cuba is not a rich country, it has always shared what it has with its neighbors. He emphasized the importance of collaborative efforts, in particular the opportunities for Caribbean students to study in Cuba.
