Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Monday highlighted bilateral relations with small island States of the Pacific Ocean.

On Twitter, Rodriguez celebrated the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Solomon Islands, a nation which Cuba has outstanding relations with based on friendship, cooperation and solidarity.

He added Cuba is presently celebrating two decades of diplomatic relations with other Pacific Islands including Tonga, Fiji, Kiribati and the Cook Islands.
