Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel to attend EAEU summit in person for the first time

Previously, he has only joined in online format


Leaders of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member states will meet at the summit on 8 May, and they will be joined by the leaders of Uzbekistan and Cuba, which have observer status. This was announced by the Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov.

"In addition to the Russian president (Vladimir Putin), the presidents of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan (Alexander Lukashenko, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and Sadyr Japarov) will take part. The heads of observer states, namely Uzbekistan and Cuba (Shavkat Mirziyoyev and Miguel Diaz-Canel) have been invited to the meeting of the Supreme Council in an expanded structure and will take part in it"

Yury Ushakov Russian presidential aide

 

The presidential aide reminded that it is the first time that the Cuban leader will personally attend the council. Before that, he always joined the bloc's events via video link or sent a video message. Yuri Ushakov emphasised that Cuba is the only extra-regional partner of the EAEU.

In January this year, the third meeting of the Joint Commission on Cooperation between the EAEU and Cuba was held in the Cuban capital Havana.
