H.E. Miguel Diaz-Canel, President of the Republic of Cuba, is likely to attend the 73rd United Nations General Assembly in New York which begins 18 September 2018 and concludes 5 October 2018.
This would be his first visit to the United States as Head of State of the Republic of Cuba.
President Diaz-Canel would expect to have a robust schedule of bilateral meetings with heads of state and heads of government as the country must focus upon the maintenance, establishment and re-establishment of commercial, economic and political relationships with countries which present opportunities to provide to the Republic of Cuba direct financial assistance, indirect financial assistance, extension of repayment for previously-delivered funding, and Direct Foreign Investment (DFI).
Expectations are for President Diaz-Canel to also host leaders (including ministers of foreign affairs) in the city of Havana, Republic of Cuba, prior to and subsequent to the 73rd United Nations General Assembly in New York.
Not unreasonable to expect H.E. Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation (who could visit Washington DC as well), H.E. Hassan Rouhani, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, H.E. Bashar al-Assad, President of Syria, and perhaps H.E. Kim Jong-un, the leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (who could visit Washington DC as well) to attend the 73rd United Nations General Assembly in New York.
