Cuba and Russia commit to further advancing their strategic economic partnership, the Russian foreign ministry said in a message retweeted by its embassy in Havana.

President Putin telephoned Diaz-Canel the day after he was elected as first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), following the announcement of the retirement of Raul Castro from the position. It is the top job in the government of Cuba.

The Russian government had earlier issued a statement congratulating Diaz-Canel and expressing the willingness to “develop a constructive bilateral dialogue and mutually-beneficial cooperation” between the two nations.

In a phone call on Tuesday the two heads of state also emphasized their governments’ commitment to joint efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry’s official Twitter account.
