Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama met with the Cuban President His Excellency, Miguel Díaz-Canel in Havana earlier this evening.

The Prime Minister said Fiji and Cuba were both committed to helping the world through its great difficulties.

Whether they are challenges of eradicating poverty or promoting good health and care for our people or climate crisis, he said both Fiji and Cuba were always on the right side of the debate table.

Prime Minister Bainimarama also laid a wreath at the José Martí Memorial in honour of Cubans who sacrificed their lives for their country during conflict.

His Excellency Díaz-Canel was pleased to host the Prime Minister and his delegation, adding the visit would certainly benefit both the countries.
