Satyanand praised the development of bilateral relations over the last four years since Robaina arrived in Wellington, the country’s capital, while the Cuban diplomat summarized the main actions carried out during that period to strengthen bilateral friendship and cooperation ties.
“Cuba deeply respects New Zealand and its hardworking and affable people. We wish you all kinds of success and we hope we can further strengthen our friendly relations,” Robaina pointed out.
Recently, the Cuban representative also met with New Zealand’s Foreign Minister Murray McCully and, in another meeting, with the president of Parliament, Lockwood Smith.
Last February, Cuban VP Esteban Lazo received Christine Heather Bogle, who presented her credentials as New Zealand’s ambassador to Havana.(ACN)
