The two parties will also analyze the legal and practical frameworks of the legislation in force in the European Union to counter the enforcement of extraterritorial laws imposed by third countries, such as the Helms-Burton Act, with which the United States has reinforced its blockade against Cuba and threatens European interests.
According to the Foreign Ministry, the Cuban delegation will denounce the tightening of the US blockade in the context of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
As part of the talks, representatives of Cuban and European civil society will meet on Wednesday to review the damage caused by Washington's blockade.
