“In general, the meeting was positive. A new path opens after the EU lifted the sanctions against Cuba and we have reiterated that our country does not accept any imposition that undermines our sovereignty,” said the Cuban diplomat.
Meanwhile, the Troika, which is also comprised of high-ranking officials from the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU, praised Cuba’s international cooperation, particularly in the areas of medical assistance and human resources, and also the efficiency of the Cuban mechanisms to face natural disasters.
Perez Roque added that others topics analyzed during the meeting included the current international financial crisis and the need to reform the United Nations and to revise international institutions.
The Cuban official noted that the topic of human rights in Cuba and in the European Union was also discussed.
