Mr. Chuan Leekpai, received the Cuban ambassador to Thailand, Héctor Conde Almeida, in the framework of the 62 anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.
Remarks by Cuban Minister of Public Health Dr. José Angel Portal Miranda, during the 73rd World Health Assembly, held online:
Dear General Director, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus; Distinguished Ministers of Health, COVID-19 is a global challenge, which does not distinguish borders, ideologies or levels of development, testing health systems around the world and our ability to respond to epidemic events.
Havana, May 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Rodrigo Malmierca assured on Thursday that the US government's efforts to distort Cuba's truth will fail, adding that the US hostility to the country will reach a dead end.
Our history is clear proof of Cuba's position and its Revolution in the face of terrorism, Malmierca wrote on Twitter.
The State Department notified the U.S. Congress on May 12 that Iran, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela and Cuba were certified under Section 40A (a) of the Arms Export Control Act as "not fully cooperating" with U.S. anti-terrorism efforts in 2019.
The State Department's official website published the notification, clarifying that Cuba has now been reinstated on the infamous list from which it was removed in 2015, following the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two nations under the leadership of Presidents Barack Obama and Raúl Castro.
