The Third Secretaries of the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba to the United States, Yanet Pumariega and Dariel Quintana, visited Indiana on 25-27 February. The diplomats had the opportunity to meet with several officials there and to talk about the mutual benefits of improving the bilateral relations between Cuba and the United States.
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.
