Rush in the EU to conclude agreement with Cuba
Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, said on Wednesday that the European Union (EU) is determined to conclude the negotiation of its first bilateral agreement with Cuba and added he hopes for the normalization of relations between Havana and Washington and the "end of the American embargo".
"We support the modernization of Cuba and we are committed to conclude our negotiations on an agreement on political dialogue and cooperation," Tusk said in his speech at the opening of the summit between the EU and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), held in Brussels.
The Polish politician noted the EU expects "the full normalization of Cuba's relations with the US and the end of embargo" imposed more than fifty years ago by Washington on the island.
On the occasion of the Euro-Latin American summit in Brussels, Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the EU and vice president of the European Commission, held a bilateral meeting with Cuban First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel.
