Chinese Premier Calls for Stronger Ties With Cuba

Chinese Premier Li Qiang called for strengthened cooperation between China and Cuba on April 24, highlighting the importance of China’s ties with Latin America. Li met with Cuba’s vice president and member of the Communist Party of Cuba, Roberto Morales Ojeda.

During the talks, Li said that no matter how the international situation evolves, it will not affect the long-term relationship between the two socialist countries.

The determination to support Cuba in taking the socialist path will not change, and the direction of promoting pragmatic cooperation between China and Cuba will not change.

Li then said China is willing to deepen friendship and expand mutually beneficial cooperation with Cuba. He called for efforts to safeguard world peace, uphold fairness and justice, and jointly explore the path to promoting modernization in both countries. Li also underlined the need to implement the Belt and Road Initiative, China’s program to invest in global infrastructure development.

China is Cuba’s largest trading partner, accounting for 38 percent of its exports in 2019. The ties between the two Communist-aspiring nations go back to the 1960s. The power China is building in Cuba and elsewhere in Latin America will lead to greater control over this region, presenting a danger for the United States.

Prophecy says: Isaiah 23 prophesies of a “mart of nations” that will include Asian superpowers Russia and China and a German-led Europe. These nations will strengthen their economic ties to economically besiege America in a trade war. However, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry has explained that Latin America will also join the effort.

Europe already wields considerable influence in Latin America. And once Russia and China enter into a brief alliance with Europe, the influence these powers exert in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela will translate into greater foreign control over the region.
