St. Kitts seeking to deepen diplomatic relations with Cuba

St. Kitts-Nevis is exploring the possibility of establishing an embassy in Cuba next year as the Federation seeks to improve its diplomatic relations with Havana, Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas has said.

Dr. Douglas gave the commitment during a courtesy call by Hugo Ruiz Cabrera, who assumed the post of Chargé d’affaires ad interim, following the departure of Cuba’s ambassador Jorge D. Payret Zubiaur.

A government statement Wednesday said that Prime Minister Douglas and the new Cuban diplomat also discussed several areas of cooperation of a bi-lateral nature in the area of education, health and agriculture.
