President of the Spanish Congress plans to travel to Cuba
Jesus Posada, president of the Spanish Congress, intends to visit Cuba next September with MPs from other parliamentary groups.
In the corridors of the Chamber, Posada confirmed the travel plan that he considered "timely and appropriate" in current times of opening on the island for closer relations between the governments and peoples of both countries.
Posada met on Thursday in the Congress of Deputies with Eugenio Martinez, Ambassador of Cuba in Spain, to discuss several issues, including the visit of the parliamentary delegation to the island, originally scheduled for the first days of September.
The trip is the result of an invitation from Esteban Lazo, president of Cuba's National Assembly (unicameral parliament).
Although the plan is not closed, the delegation, composed of officers and some spokespersons of the groups, does not intend to meet with Cuban dissidents.
