 High Representative for Foreign Policy of the European Union (EU), Federica Mogherini, starts this Wednesday an official two-day visit to Cuba to strengthen bilateral relations.
Mogherini arrives at a new stage of the ties, after the entry into force - the first of last November - of the agreement in which Havana and Brussels established the lines for political dialogue and cooperation, and which will be provisional, until the parliaments of the 28 member states of the EU ratify it.
