Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s foreign affairs chief, wrapped up her official visit to Cuba, where she co-chaired the second EU-Cuba Joint Council on 9 September with Cuba’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Bruno Rodríguez.

At the meeting, Mogherini and Rodríguez discussed how to continue with the implementation of the two sides joint Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement that was first signed in 2017.

While in Cuba, Mogherini met with representatives of civil society, entrepreneurs, and European business leaders to discuss trade and economic cooperation, including measures to protect EU companies who are doing business with the Communist-controlled island nation.
