China Ratifies Willingness to Strengthen Legal Cooperation with Cuba

Beijing, June 18 (Prensa Latina) The Chinese Minister of Justice, Fu Zhenghua, has ratified the will to deepen friendship and legal cooperation with Cuba, when welcoming the Secretary of the Cuban Council of State, Homero Acosta, official sources reported on Tuesday.

The Chinese Minister also expressed interest in learning about Cuba’s experience in reforming the new Constitution, proclaimed on April 10, according to a statement from Havana’s embassy in Beijing.

Acosta, for his part, shared the experiences gathered during this process and updated Fu on the tightening of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba almost 60 years ago.

He explained that the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act has the primary purpose of choking the Cuban economy and causing serious harm to the people.

However, he emphasized the determination of Cuba to withstand and not be frightened by the intensification of Washington’s hostile policy.

Acosta arrived on Monday in Beijing from Vietnam and is making an official visit until Friday 21.

His agenda includes meetings with officials of the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress and the Chinese Law Society, as well as the Chinese Communist Party and the local Foreign Office.

He is accompanied by Cuban Vice Minister of Justice Rosabel Gamon and Yumil Rodriguez, Deputy Head of the Secretariat of the Council of State.
