Cuba is satisfied with its foreign relations with the Caribbean Community, reads a statement issued on Friday by Cuba's Foreign Ministry, on the occasion of Cuba-CARICOM day.

According to the note published in the Granma newspaper, Cuba reiterates its full support and friendship to CARICOM on the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with the first four signatories of the Caribbean organization Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago.

The declaration calls this a "brave gesture" which challenged the policy of isolation of Cuba imposed by the United States on Latin America and the Caribbean, and acknowledges the repeated support of the Caribbean sister nations against the US blockade of Cuba in international forums throughout the years.

"These four English speaking countries were at the time the only independent nations of the Caribbean. Years later, other states in the area became independent and established diplomatic relations with Cuba," the statement reads.
Invited guests for the celebrations for the Cuba-CARICOM day on Saturday include Charles Burnett, Barbados's deputy permanent secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade.
