Mexico, Cuba agree on return of ambassadors

Posted May 28, 2004 by publisher in Cuba Politics.


On Thursday, Cuba and Mexico agreed on the return of their ambassadors to end the diplomatic crisis sparked in early this month.

Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque confirmed this news after a meeting with his Mexican counterpart Luis Ernesto Derbez that was held in the Mexican city of Guadalajara the same day on the sidelines of the third summit of the European Union (EU), Latin American and Caribbean countries.

“The respective ambassadors will soon return to their embassies,” Roque said, adding that both countries “agree on the importance of normalizing the relations.”

On May 2, Mexico announced it was withdrawing its ambassador from Havana, and Cuba responded by doing the same with its ambassador in Mexico City.

I haven’t heard much about this. I guess the break up news is more popular than the make up news.
