BRUSSELS, Belgium. – MEPs of various parties met this Wednesday with the Minister of Culture of Cuba, Abel Prieto, to whom they expressed their solidarity and the decision to support as much as possible the Caribbean nation.

As part of his visit to Belgium, invited by members of the European Parliament, Prieto was received today by members of the Confederal Group of the European United Left/Nordic Green Left, as well as by its president, Gaby Zimmer.

In both meetings, the Cuban Minister of Culture and also a member of the National Assembly of People´s Power explained that Cuba is at a complex moment after the devastating Hurricane Irma, as well as the recent announcements by the United States Government.

In that sense, he argued that President Donald Trump’s attitude means a setback, after the progress achieved in the rapprochement between the two nations.
