Emirati chancellor arrives in Havana to sign agreements on finances and air services

Having arrived last Monday in Havana, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the U.A.E is in Cuba on an official visit to carry out various negotiations with the Cuban government, including the sign-off to various agreements involving finance and the provision of air services.

During his stay in Cuba, Abdullah Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan will be signing two contracts, one involving air services and the other regarding a loan from Abu Dhabi Fund for Development which is destined to finance a project for generating 10 MW of electricity utilising solar energy power, according to official reports.

The governments of the United Arab Emirates and Cuba established diplomatic ties on 18th March 2002 and ever since have been in talks regarding various projects of various scales. This two new agreements will be the first to materialise and more details of those are expected to be unveiled over the course of the next few days.

The United Arab Emirates have strongly supported the United Nations’ resolution against the decades-long economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on Cuba by the U.S and they work alongside Cuba to help the small the Caribbean nation fund projects for social and economic development.
