Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodriguez, had talks this Monday with Governor General of Barbados, Dame Sandra Mason, as part of his official visit to this Caribbean nation.

‘I had a cordial exchange with the Governor General of Barbados, Her Excellency Sandra Mason. We highlight the friendship, solidarity and cooperation that join our countries,’ wrote Rodriguez Parrilla on Twitter.

The Cuban Minister makes an official visit to this country as part of a Caribbean tour that also took him to Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Lucia and Guyana, where he participated in the 6th Caricom-CUBA Ministerial Meeting.

Barbados re-established diplomatic relations with Cuba, as did Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Jamaica, in December 1972, a fact that broke the diplomatic isolation that the United States intended to establish over Cuba.

During his stay in Barbados, the Cuban diplomat is also meeting with Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley and Foreign Minister Jerome Walcott, as well as other government officials and figures.

This morning he visited the monument to the Martyrs of Barbados, dedicated to the victims of a mid-air terrorist attack on a Cuban commercial aircraft.

‘At the Monument to the Martyrs of Barbados, in front of the sea in which Cubana de Aviacion flight 455 fell in 1976, I pay deserved tribute to the victims of that terrorist act in which 73 innocent people lost their lives. Barbarism and injustice still hurt. #Cuba’, the Foreign Minister also wrote on Twitter.
