Cuban president to visit SVG in December


(iWitness News) President of Cuba Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel will make an official visit to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) Dec. 3-5, becoming the first Cuban leader to do so since the Cuban Revolution in 1959.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves made the announcement in Parliament on Monday, saying that the national assembly will meet for a formal sitting in honour of the visit.

Gonsalves said that Díaz-Canel will remain in SVG until around midday on Dec. 5, before travelling to Barbados for the 8th Cuba-CARICOM Summit.
