Cuba and Antigua & Barbuda explored ways in Havana on Monday to fight drug trafficking, which will be controlled by an accord that both nations will sign on October 20.

This initiative was detailed at a meeting between Antigua and Barbuda's Justice Minister, Colin Derrick, and his Cuban counterpart, Roberto Sotolongo, when starting the official programme of his one-week visit to Havana.

Sotolongo highlighted the Cuban government's political will to quicken steps in that area.

Derrick stressed interest in fostering very positive ties with Cuba in areas like health and education.

Derrick's agenda includes meeting with authorities from the Interior and Foreign Affairs Ministries, as well as Cuba's Attorney General's office, the Supreme Court and the National Assembly, among others.

The Antigua and Barbuda delegation is also made up of Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary, Colin Murdoch, Chief Immigration Officer, Colonel Clyde S. Walter, and Ambassador Bruce Goodwin.

Agreements of this kind have been signed by Cuba with several Caribbean nations against international drug trafficking.
