During a joint press conference, Mexican President Felipe Calderon said that diplomacy and respect for the decisions of the Cuban people should mark the political future of the Caribbean nation.
Calderon and Zapatero also criticized the almost fifty-year-old US economic, financial and trade blockade of Cuba.
The EU sanctions against Cuba were suspended in 2005 but they were not annulled.
A meeting of the EU Foreign Ministers will take place in Luxembourg next Monday. It is expected that the end of the sanctions against Cuba will be one of the topics on the agenda.
