Cuban Government Highlights Commonalities with Pope Francis

The Cuban government has underscored the common vision it shares with Pope Francis on a series of issues including nuclear disarmament, environmental protection, and the war on poverty.

The President of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, was received in a private audience in the Vatican by Pope Francis Tuesday, after which the Cuban government issued a press release stressing “the positive state of bilateral relations” between Cuba and the Holy See.

Cuba praised the pontiff for his “active role” in the search for solutions to the serious problems that affect humanity today.

It also noted the common criteria shared by the two parties “on issues such as the defense of international peace, nuclear disarmament, the protection of the environment, the promotion of solidarity and the fight against social exclusion, inequality, and poverty.”
