The top Cuban diplomat was in China at the beginning of last November, as part of the delegation of President Miguel Díaz-Canel´s first trip to China after taking office.
The Cuban head of state assured then that his stay in the Asian giant had a special significance because it focused on fostering more friendship between both governments and peoples. (RHC)
