Medvedev visited Havana on Oct. 3-4 where he was received by the ex-president and leader of the ruling Communist Party of Cuba Raul Castro.
Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel met with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev Tuesday in order to address a series of joint ventures across key areas that will strengthen cooperation between both countries.
“We were able to address many important issues and even formulate many new ideas, which I hope we can develop and promote during your current visit, both during our meeting and during your negotiations with President (Vladimir) Putin,” Medvedev said upon receiving Diaz Canel, who traveled to Russia with a large Cuban delegation.
During the diplomatic visit, the Russian PM and Diaz-Canel penned eight agreements covering key sectors such as economy, investment, transport, customs and culture, among others.
Both governments agreed to strengthen their strategic partnership between private and public sectors in order to support energy, agriculture, technology and digital development projects in Cuba.
Medvedev, who said Tuesday he had good memories of that visit to the island, also congratulated Diaz-Canel for being appointed president of Cuba, and sent greetings to Raul Castro, according to the Interfax and TASS agencies.
