Diaz-Canel said in his congratulatory message that in the face of the pandemic, Cuba and China have been committed to unity and cooperation, pooling resources to save lives, taking scientific prevention and control measures and undertaking international cooperation.

Premier Li Keqiang also exchanged congratulatory messages with his Cuban counterpart, Manuel Marrero, on Monday.

Li said in the message that China will work with Cuba to build the Belt and Road and push forward anti-pandemic cooperation between the two sides, so as to promote China-Cuba relations in the new era to sound and sustainable development and continuously raise their ties to new levels.

Marrero expressed his warmest congratulations to China on behalf of the Cuban government and people, adding that Cuba stands ready to deepen economic and trade cooperation with China and bring it to a higher level.
