JCP Vice Chair Ogata talks with Cuban ambassador

April 3, 2021

Japanese Communist Party Vice Chair Ogata Yasuo, who also chairs the JCP International Commission, held talks with Miguel A Ramirez, the Cuban ambassador to Japan, at the JCP head office on April 2.

The ambassador explained the economic reform seeking the integration of dollar-peso dual currencies into the Cuban peso (CUP) as well as the fight against COVID-19 and vaccine development in Cuba. He also talked about the planned 8th congress of the Communist Party of Cuba in mid-April and the U.S. sanctions policy further causing hardships on Cuba.

The ambassador handed to Ogata a letter from Jose Angel Arzuaga Reyes, vice head of the International Department of the Communist Party of Cuba.

Ogata thanked the ambassador for his detailed explanation and for the letter, saying that he basically agrees on the further development of JCP-CPC relations as expressed in Reyes’s letter.

Ogata pointed out that it is only natural for the two parties to have differences of opinions in the complicated international situation, and he stressed the importance of maintaining dialogue with each other despite disagreements in regard to the Venezuelan issue.

The ambassador said in response that he also agrees on the need to maintain dialogue regardless of various differences in opinion. The two agreed that they will continue holding talks.
