Refering to the migratory issue, Perez Roque said in a brief contact with the media on his arrival in this capital that they are seeking an agreement to favor a legal and ordered migratory influx, which avoids the danger of causing death to children and adults during illegal migration attempts.
He said Mexico and Cuba are victims of people smuggling, encouraged from the United States and that both sides have agreed in the need to face up to that problem.
On Monday, Perez Roque will place a wreath at the monument to the Cuban National Hero Jose Marti and will pay homage to the Americas' Distinguished Figure Benito Juarez, at the congressional chamber named after him.
Later, the visitor will be in charge of giving a magisterial lecture entitled "Cuba: its struggles and dreams," and the Mexican Foreign Ministry announced that it would include details of the recovery process in the Island after the path of two powerful hurricanes.
In his first day in the Federal District, the Cuban foreign minister visited the pyramids of Teotihuacan and the Anthropology and History Museum, and has planned to conclude the day with a meeting with the Cuban group of workers of Cuba's embassy to Mexico.
The minister announced that during his official visit, he would give an invitation, on behalf of President Raul Castro, to Mexican President Felipe Calderon to visit Cuba.
With his presence in this capital, theCuban diplomat reciprocates the visit to the Island in March by his Mexican peer Patricia Espinosa.
