Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu held negotiations with Minister of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Cuba Corps General Leopoldo Frias in Moscow on November 14.

“The mutual intention to develop dialogue and practical cooperation between the defense ministries of the two countries was confirmed,” the Defense Ministry said.
