 The chairman of the Council of state of Cuba is invited to visit North Korea at the invitation of Kim Jeong-eun.


It also marks the first visit by Cuban leaders to Pyongyang since the late revolutionary leader Fidel Castro visited Pyongyang in 1986. The North Korean leader has not yet visited Havana.

According to previous announcements by the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dias-Carnell plans to visit Russia, China, Vietnam, North Korea and Laos from 1 to 12 November. During his visit to DPRK, Dias-Carnell will continue high-level political dialogue and discuss bilateral and international issues. This is the first visit to Asia since he became Cubas new leader in April.

On September 7, 2015, on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Korean Labour Party, Kim Jong-un met with visiting Dias-Carnell in Pyongyang, who was then a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party, the first vice-chairman of the State Council and the first vice-chairman of the Council of Ministers. In April this year, Diaz Caner was elected chairman of the State Council of Cuba and chairman of the Council of ministers.

In August, Cui Longhai, the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, the Vice-Chairman of the State Council and the Vice-Chairman of the CPC Central Committee, visited Cuba as Special Envoy to Kim Jong-un, and sent letters to Raul Castro, the first Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, and Dias Carnell, respectively. The previous month, Li Suyong, vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Korean Labour Party, also visited Havana and met with Dias-Carnell and Raul Castro. Li conveyed Kim Jong-uns greetings. The two sides discussed the historic friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries and signed an exchange and cooperation agreement with the Cuban Communist Party.

According to observer network, Cuba and North Korea have become allies at the beginning of the cold war. Che Guevara, a Cuban Revolutionary, visited North Korea in 1960, praising the Kim Il-Sung regime as an example for Cuba. After the end of the cold war, the two countries, both in isolation at the international level, have constantly strengthened their relations. They often express to the outside world their willingness to ignore sanctions and join hands economically. In recent years, high-level exchanges between North Korea and Cuba have been frequent. In December 2016, North Korea sent a delegation to the funeral of Cuban leader Fidel Castro, stressing that the two countries should develop all areas of relations. In November 2017, when the international community was increasingly isolated, North Korea still sent its foreign minister to visit Cuba, an old ally. In response to the importance attached to its allies, Cuba remains one of the few countries in the world that has not established diplomatic relations with South Korea.
