The Ambassador of the Republic of Cuba in the Republic of Azerbaijan, Alfredo Nieves Portuondo, received the new Azerbaijani charge d'affaires in Havana, Ilham Agayev, at the headquarters of the Cuban diplomatic mission in Baku.
During the working meeting, both diplomats exchanged views on bilateral relations, reiterating the mutual commitment to continue strengthening friendship ties.
Agayev highlighted the potential that exists to develop economic-commercial relations, in sectors such as health, biotechnology, tourism and sports, among others.
For his part, Nieves Portuondo thanked the traditional rejection of Azerbaijan to the economic blockade of the US government against Cuba.
He explained the resurgence of this policy, with the new aggressive escalation of the US Government, under Title III of the Helms-Burton Law and the application of illegal and extraterritorial measures.
