Havana, Cuba.- The first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, Raúl Castro, and President Miguel Díaz-Canel reportedly welcomed in Havana Bolivian President Evo Morales who made a stopover in route to New York.

According to the Twitter account of the Cuban Presidency, Morales made a stop over on Sunday in Havana before continuing to that American city, where he will attend the high-level segment of the 74th session of the General Assembly of the Organization of the United Nations (UN).

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez had traveled earlier to New York heading the Cuban delegation that will attend the important meeting, in which his country will ratify its commitment to the defense of peace and multilateralism.

Rodriguez’s participation at the UN General Assembly comes at times of growing Washington’s hostility towards Cuba and its diplomacy, following the expulsion of two representatives of the Cuban mission to the UN.

Around 140 heads of State and Government will participate from September 24 to 30 in the high-level week of the UN General Assembly at its 74th session.
