Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel expressed his satisfaction this Sunday with the announcement by his Mexican counterpart, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), that he will visit Cuba soon.

“In his Friday morning, AMLO has said that he is coming to Cuba in the coming weeks. You will be welcome. It is always a pleasure to receive brothers from the Great Homeland”, the Cuban president published on his account on the social network Twitter.
Díaz-Canel stressed that Mexico and his counterpart from that nation have a privileged place in his affections.
López Obrador confirmed this morning that he will tour several Central American countries and Cuba next May, with the aim of strengthening bilateral ties and addressing the migration issue, among other issues.
The Mexican head of state will tour the territories of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Belize, in addition to the largest of the Antilles.
López Obrador highlighted the importance of discussing migrants seeking to enter the United States (USA) through Mexico. He insisted on the need to promote programs aimed at controlling the causes of migration, including economic precariousness and lack of jobs.
AMLO mentioned the initiatives Sowing Lives and Youth Building the Future. Regarding the latter, he specified that it favors the creation of 120,000 jobs, an experience that he urged neighboring countries to adopt.

The Mexican leader reiterated the invitation to the United States to be part of programs of this type and other proposals such as the delivery of temporary work visas, after evaluating the workforce needs.
Cuba and Mexico celebrated in 2021 the 120 years of establishing diplomatic relations. This has been a bond of respect and special friendship that was ratified last September when President Díaz-Canel visited the neighboring nation to participate in the commemoration of the 211th anniversary of the Grito de Dolores and the Bicentennial of the culmination of Independence.
