The President of the Republic of Suriname, Desire Delano Bouterse, will make an official visit to Cuba from next December 2, the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced today.
The distinguished visitor will hold official talks with Cuban authorities and carry out other activities.
The two countries have maintained diplomatic relations for 40 years and agree on international issues and the regional agenda, as part of the close ties that Cuba has with the members of the Caribbean Community.
Suriname has been one of the governments to support at all times the resolution presented by Cuba at the UN General Assembly, a document that demands every year the lifting of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade against the Caribbean island.
This South American country has over 558.000 inhabitants in a total area of 163.000 square kilometers.
