In La Habana, Cuban Chancellor Bruno Rodríguez received Marcos Peña, Chief of the Cabinet of Ministers of Argentina, who made a brief visit to the island in order to consolidate bilateral relations.

Peña stated on Twitter that the reason for his trip to the island is to strengthen his country's connections with the Cuban government after Miguel Diaz-Canel took over the presidency from Raúl Castro on April 19th.

The two parties considered Cuba's intentions to return a loan granted by Hector Cámpora, former Minister of Economy, to the Cubans in the 70s, for the purchase of tractors, cars and agricultural machinery in Argentina, which would today be the equivalent of approximately USD $2 billion.
