The Director General of Bilateral Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX), Emilio Lozada, is representing Cuba at the 50th edition of the PIF, which is currently underway in Tuvalu through 16 August.
Lozada met with the Secretary General of the Forum, Dame Meg Taylor, as well as with Foreign Ministers of several nations that make up this mechanism for the cooperation of small island states.
The Cuban representative discussed the potential for cooperation and the expansion of the political dialogue with the Foreign Ministers of Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, Sori Eoe, Jeremih Manele and Ralph Regenvanu.
