Cuban first vice-president Miguel Diaz Canel said in Beijing that relations between Cuba and China are historical and on that basis they develop supported by the political will of the leaders of the two nations in all stages of the revolutionary processes that take place in both countries.
In his statements, Diaz-Canel recalled that Cuba was the first Latin American country to recognize the People´s Republic of China and to establish relations with that state.
"We are precisely marking the 55th anniversary of the establishment of those links and it was Fidel Castro who, in a public rally at the (Havana´s) Revolution Square and while sharing with the people, announced the establishment of diplomatic relations with China; that is why the way in which those relations were established has this beauty," said Diaz-Canel.
For the Cuban official, Cuba-China relations have deepened over the past few years with the boost of bilateral links which, in his opinion, has a lot to do with the successful visit to Cuba last year by President Xi Jinping.
