The Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs published on its official Twitter account that the Cuban delegation will be headed by Deputy Minister Carlos Fernández de Cossío.

Meanwhile, the Cuban government has previously reaffirmed its position with respect to guaranteeing an orderly and safe migration in accordance with the norms established in international migration law.

In this sense, the Cuban side has denounced the failure of the US government to grant a minimum of 20,000 visas as stated in the bilateral agreements.

From this complex scenario, there is a notable increase in the number of Cubans who participate in irregular migration routes through Central America, where a large part without specifying, lose their lives.

During the course of this year, around 1,680 nationals have been returned to the Caribbean nation from the United States, the Cayman Islands, Mexico and the Bahamas.

However, according to the US federal authorities, in the period between October of last year and February 2022, about 46,000 Cubans arrived at the US-Mexico border.
