Cuban Ambassador accredited to Bhutan


Bhutan and Cuba have taken a new step towards strengthening relations with the accreditation of the first Cuban ambassador, Abelardo Cueto, to that realm in the eastern section of the Himalayas.

The presentation of credentials to King Jigme Khesar took place Jun 6 in a colorful ceremony “where I was able to convey the warm greetings of our government and leaders to the Bhutanese authorities,” Cueto told Prensa Latina.

“At the same time,” he added, “they sent identical greetings and best wishes to Comandante Fidel Castro and President Raul Castro.

As ambassador resident in India and concurrently in Bangladesh, Cueto completed an extensive government agenda and other activities of cultural and social interest in Thimphu, the KingdomâÖs capital, between June 4 and 8.

 Bhutanese authorities offered a friendly reception and displayed considerable affection for Cuba and its Revolution.

Cuba and Bhutan established diplomatic relations last year.
