Cuban President Receives His Salvadoran Counterpart

Havana, Oct 25 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel received on Thursday his Salvadoran counterpart, Salvador Sanchez Ceren, who is on an official five-day visit to the island.

Previously, the Salvadoran President laid a wreath to the Cuban National Hero, Jose Marti, in the Memorial that bears his name located in this capital.

According to the program, Sanchez Ceren will visit the Santa Ifigenia cemetery in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba tomorrow to pay tribute to the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
