Funes to visit Havana on first official visit since relations restored with Cuba

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Mauricio Funes, the president of El Salvador, will pay an official visit to Cuba for the first time since diplomatic ties between the two states were restored about a year ago.

El Salvador severed diplomatic ties with Havana in 1961, but ties resumed when Funes took office in summer 2009.

Funes said he would discuss ways to boost bilateral relations, mainly in trade and economics, with Cuban leader Raul Castro.
