The Minister for Economic Development of Azerbaijan, Heydar Babayev, inaugurated on Saturday the embassy of this Euro-Asian country in the municipality of Playa in the Cuban capital.

The ceremony was attended by the Cuban Minister for Foreign Investment and Economic Cooperation Marta Lomas.

"Cuba is more than a friend to Azerbaijan because of its constant support in the international arena. That is why we have decided to open an embassy here, also as a way to express our interest in revitalizing our economic relations," said Babayev.

For his part, Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Abelardo Moreno greeted the delegation from Azerbaijan on behalf of Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque and noted that the presence in Havana of the diplomats from Azerbaijan will contribute to the promotion of bilateral commercial ties.

Babayev had arrived in Cuba for an official visit last Thursday accompanied by seven deputy ministers.

On Saturday, he met with authorities of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Foreign Trade, the Ministry for Foreign Investment and Economic Cooperation and the Ministry of the Basic Industry.

On Friday, they signed a Protocol of the Cuba-Azerbaijan Joint Commission for Mutual Cooperation that identifies sectors of common interest such as health, sports, education, informational technologies, energy and tourism.
