HAVANA TIMES — Salvadoran president Salvador Sanchez Ceren, arrived in Cuba on Tuesday for a two-day visit where he will meet with his Cuban counterpart Raul Castro.
The Central American country aims to increase its trade and economic cooperation with Cuba, said Sanchez Ceren upon reaching Havana.
“I’m happy to be here and want to know more about this relationship that unites us,” said Sanchez. The former Salvadoran guerrilla leader also told Cuban TV that he felt “at home” in Cuba.
Sanchez arrived in Havana accompanied by Foreign Minister Hugo Martinez and his ministers of Finance, Tharsis Solomon, and Health, Violeta Menjivar, among other members of his cabinet.
Cuba supports the Central American country since 1992 with medical missions often sent to nations of Latin America and Africa, states the Cuban Foreign Ministry.
