Legislators from Mexico and Cuba Plan to Increase Cooperation
Mexico, Feb 17 (Prensa Latina) The 16th Mexico-Cuba interparliamentary meeting begins today in Merida, capital of Yucatan, with a broad agenda that fosters cooperation between both countries.
The presidents of the Mexican Deputy Chamber and the Cuban National People's Power Assembly, Javier Bolaños and Esteban Lazo, respectively, are leading the delegations of legislators from the two nations, composed of the heads of several committees of those legislative bodies.
Cooperation in issues such as education, culture, health, sports and economy will be part of discussions today and tomorrow.
The two sides will also debate the foreign policy challenges facing Mexico and Cuba in the current international situation.
The ties between the two parliaments are in good health and they are an expression of the relaunch of relations that the administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto has promoted with the Cuban government, sources of the Cuban delegation said.
Merida, with extensive historical and cultural ties with Cuba, is a suitable venue for this event, since it hosted the summit between presidents Enrique Peña Nieto and Raul Castro in November 2016.
