Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez stressed Tuesday that the island's consulates and embassies had maintained their vitality during the Covid-19 epidemic and the attention to Cuban nationals living abroad.

He commented that among several provisions, consulates established remote procedures to guarantee the return of nationals stranded in other countries and organized more than 90 flights.
