According to journalist Pablo Hiriart, the Cuban regime does not waste time on courtesy visits, because basically what it requires is foreign currency.
This Saturday the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, will deliver the decoration of the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle, in the degree of Collar, to ” His Excellency Mr. Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez “, leader of the Cuban regime, thus sealing the relationship between both leaders, after his counterpart delivered a similar distinction to AMLO in May 2022, during his visit to the Caribbean island.
In accordance with the presidential decree of López Obrador, the recognition has the purpose of recognizing “His Excellency Mr. Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez”, for his work in strengthening relations of friendship and cooperation between Mexico and Cuba.
The Mexican presidency announced that during the visit of the Cuban leader, in addition to thanking the support for the health system by sending Cuban doctors, both leaders will hold a summit on the subject to address the health issue. In this regard, López Obrador announced that During the year, more personnel from the island will arrive on Aztec land to join the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS).
According to journalist Pablo Hiriart, the underlying issue in this state visit is the negotiation of cash resources for the Cuban regime, recalling that Mexico has imported medical services from that country and that this agreement will be maintained in the future. through the IMSS.
According to Hiriart, the Cuban regime does not waste time on courtesy visits, since basically what it requires are foreign currency to be able to buy supplies and food in the United States, where the Díaz-Canel government must pay in cash, since they are not granted credit because they “do not pay”.
The communicator pointed out that Díaz-Canel is not a figure of the Cuban revolution, and is an office bureaucrat, who seeks to remain in office to evade the courts, since his mandate has been marked by the violation of Human Rights of the Cuban people themselves.
In May 2022, the PAN protested the arrival of more than 500 Cuban doctors in Mexico, noting that the López Obrador government hired these brigades for the third time to financially help the Cuban regime.
Legislator Julen Rementería assured in May of last year that “this government invents causes, disguises emergencies to insert Cuban doctors in Mexico, and where they have spent almost 256 million pesos, that is, 433 thousand pesos, in three months, for each Cuban doctor, while a health professional in Mexico earns approximately 17,000 pesos a month.”
The senator of the National Action Party (PAN), Kenia López Rabadán, assured that the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador ( AMLO ) paid 255 million pesos for the hiring of Cuban medical personnel during the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the agreement between Cuba and Mexico has been criticized by the opposition in the North American country – which has described it as costly and unnecessary – and by some NGOs, which brand the situation of the doctors as “slavery”.
In addition, Mexico bought some 9 million doses of the Cuban Abdala vaccine in 2022, one of the three that the island has developed against covid-19 (and that its population has applied massively).
