Zakharova said Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel would hold a meeting with Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov, who will be attending the event. 
"The Latin American segment of the upcoming forum will focus on discussing new forms of interaction. It is important for Latin American and Caribbean states, which have not joined the anti-Russian sanctions, to be our reliable economic partners," the spokeswoman said. 

In this regard, Zakharova said it is a priority issue for Latin America and Russia to promote cooperation. She added that such collaboration is pursued pragmatically with no ideological dogmas.

The official also said that Russian President Vladimir Putin would take stock of the world's current situation and outline Russia's prospects for future economic development during his address to the forum plenary session on Friday.
