Since October 2008 when Brazil President Lula visited Cuba, President Raul Castro has met with ten Presidents.
President Lula da Silva - Brazil
President Hu - China
President Medvedev - Russia (once in Cuba and once in Russia)
President Rafael Correa - Ecuador
President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner - Argentina
President José Eduardo dos Santos - Angola
President Abdelaziz Bouteflika - Algeria
President Bachelet - Chile
President Hifikepunye Lucas Pohamba - Nambia
President Alvaro Colom - Guatemala
In January 2009 Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa went to Cuba just before Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner met with Raul Castro. The President of Mexico has not yet met with President Castro but the Mexican Senate President did meet with Raul Castro in Cuba.
This month has been a particularly busy month for President Castro. He just got back from his Russia trip where Raul Castro met with the Presidents of Russia, Angola and Algeria.
Then just days after he arrived in Cuba, President Bachelet from Chile arrived in Cuba.
Right after this meeting, Nambian President Hifikepunye Lucas Pohamba met with President Castro in Cuba in order to officially recognize each others higher education diplomas and to work together on medical issues.
Today the President of Guatemala, Alvaro Colom, is in Cuba to strengthen bilateral ties as they say.
