“And, of course, we have had Cuban foreign ministers come to visit us. But this is the first time and I am sure the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines will respond very warmly to His Excellency President Miguel Diaz Canal and it would be a strengthening of the bonds of friendship between our two countries,” PM Gonsalves said. 

Prime Minister Gonsalves said that On Monday, December 5th, at 10:00 a.m Parliament will hold a formal sitting in honour of the visiting Cuban leader and that as has been the case when heads of governments have addressed Parliament, he, the Leader of the Opposition, Dr Godwin Friday, and Speaker of the House will also address the Parliament.
