Cuba, EU hold dialogue on disarmament

Cuba and the EU on Friday held their first-ever dialogue on common views in the field of disarmament in the framework of the Agreement on Political Dialogue and Cuba-EU Cooperation.

They discussed disarmament and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and illicit trafficking in small arms and light weapons and other conventional weapons. They also discussed impacts generated by the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed on Cuba by the US, particularly in international cooperation under the Conventions on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and Biological Weapons.

The two sides pledged their efforts to address all issues on the basis of full respect for sovereign equality, independence, rule of law, and non-interference in the internal affairs of each other.
