Historian of Havana City received by New Orleans Mayor
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu received Havana City Historian Eusebio Leal on Friday, who is on a visit to the largest city of the state of Louisiana for an academic and cultural exchange program.
Landrieu, elected in February 2010, expressed his satisfaction with the reestablishment of official relations between his country and Cuba, in an irreversible path he considered beneficial for both states, RHC reported on Friday.
The host said that these links should include the elimination of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington on the Caribbean island for more than half a century.
The mayor emphasized the immediate possibilities of exchanges between the two cities in the artistic, academic and commercial spheres, and especially in the agricultural sector.
