Bangkok, June 6 (Latin Press) Cuba and Thailand confirmed today in this capital the good state of their relations and they reaffirmed the will to strengthen those ties, informed the ambassador of the island here, Hector Conde.
In a cordial meeting with the new director general of America and South Pacific of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand, Ambassador Witchu Vejjajiva, I thanked him for the friendship gestures of the government and the people of this country towards ours, the diplomat told Prensa Latina.
In a special way, he pointed out, I recognized the continued support of Thailand to the Resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations that demands the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.
The ambassador said that these and other expressions of solidarity are more important these days, when Donald Trump’s administration is trying to close even more the siege on the Caribbean nation through the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act and other measures, even of an extraterritorial nature.
The interlocutors also discussed the follow-up of the results of the inter-chancellery meeting held in Havana in April 2016, as well as the progress of bilateral cooperation in various fields.
We also exchanged views on the importance of the next ministerial meeting of the Latin America-East Asia Cooperation Forum, to be held in November in the Dominican Republic, and to assess the main regional and global issues of international policy,” said Conde.
