cuba KoreaThe relationship shared by the peoples, governments and parties of Cuba and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has lasted six decades, almost the Revolution’s entire life.

The first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee, Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, and President of the Republic Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez sent a message of congratulations to Kim Jong Un, on the 60th anniversary of relations between the two countries.

“Celebrating six decades since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, we extend to you the most cordial congratulations in the name of the people, the Communist Party and government of Cuba,” the message read, according to the Korean Central News Agency, reported Prensa Latina.

“We take advantage of the occasion to reaffirm the high priority Cuba gives the ties of friendship and cooperation between our two countries, built on the foundation of the special relationship shared by our historic leaders, Fidel Castro Ruz and Kim Il Sung,” the missive adds.

On the occasion of the commemoration, Korean leader Kim Jong Un also sent a greeting to Raúl and Díaz-Canel, reiterating his personal support to the just cause of the Cuban people, defending their revolutionary conquests.

Over the past 60 years, both peoples have invariably defended, consolidated, and developed the noble traditions of friendship, solidarity and cooperation, Kim Jong Un noted.

He emphasized that the friendship between the two nations was created by two great leaders, Kim Il Sung and Fidel Castro, within the context of difficult international conditions and provocative challenges from hostile forces.

Since August 29, 1960, Havana and Pyongyang have maintained diplomatic relations. Cuba has always been able to count on the support of the DPRK in the struggle to end the unjust economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on our island by the United States.

The two countries share a high level of agreement on the principal issues of international interest and cooperate regularly in multi-lateral bodies.
