Dmitry Medvedev congratulated Miguel Diaz-Canel on his election as President of the Council of State and the Council of Ministers of Cuba

The congratulatory message reads, in part:

“Russia and Cuba are traditionally linked by friendly and partnership relations. I am confident that the further expansion of the entire range of bilateral cooperation and the promotion of joint prospective projects in various fields fully meet the long-term interests of our states. I hope that in your new office you will continue to give priority to the development of Russian-Cuban cooperation as well as coordinated effective work on the government line.”
