On January 27th, the World Monument Fund (WMF) organized a symposium and workshop regarding the options U.S. academic and non-profit institutions have to better support their Cuban partners in preserving Havana's heritage. Ambassador José Ramón Cabañas was among the speakers of the event entitled “Against the Current: Priorities and Pathways for Supporting Preservation in Havana”.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Plurinational State of Bolivia announced the decision of the putschist Government to suspend diplomatic relations with the Republic of Cuba, claming that the Cuban Government has systematically affected bilateral relations and has been hostile towards the Bolivian authorities.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba strongly rejects the unfounded allegations of Bolivia’s de facto government.
