Bilateral meetings, visits and other activities have been taking place as part of the preparations for the 4th Conference on Nation and Emigration, scheduled for April 8-18 in Havana.
For that purpose, Cuban consular officials recently traveled to Miami, where the largest number of Cuban migrants in the United States live, according to information published this Tuesday by Granma newspaper.
Alejandro Padron, Cuban general consul in Miami, met with Cuban Americans to ratify the call for the 4th Conference on Nation and Emigration, which will reaffirm the important role of the nationals abroad in the defense of Cuba.
It was clear that the restrictive measures and sanctions adopted by the administration of President Donald Trump significantly affect the Cuban community living in the U.S. and make it difficult to maintain ties between families.
Despite the tightening of the blockade against Cuba, the Caribbean island will continue the natural and necessary rapprochement with its nationals abroad, including their descendants.
At present, there are 124 countries where our missions have identified the presence of Cuban communities, with approximately 1.48.618 Cuban citizens living abroad, not including their descendants.
