They will also exchange views on “urgent and common interest matters on the international agenda, including the resumption of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States," the statement said.
During his stay in Lisbon, Medina will also visit the Parliament and the Camões Institute, according to sources of the Cuban Embassy in Lisbon.
