  • Description

    Cuba and Peru have established diplomatic relations at a document-signing ceremony in Lima.

    Signing on behalf o the Peruvisan Government was the Foreign Minister, General Miuel de la Flor Valls. Cuba was represented by the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Pelegrin Torras de la Luz.

    Relations between the two countries were abruptly served in 1960 when the Peruvian Government ordered the Cuban Chage d'Affaires and his staff to leave the country immediately. They were accused of proven subversive interference in Peru's national life.

    SYNOPSIS: A ceremony in the Peruvian capital, Lima, on Saturday at which Peru and Cuba re-established diplomatic relations after a break of nearly twelve years. Peru's Foreign Minister, General Miguel de la Flor Valle represented Peru at the ceremony while from Cuba came the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Pelegrin Torras de la Luz.

    The signatures of the two ministers reflect the growing contacts between Peru and Cuba. It was announced by the government in Lima last year that a resumption of diplomatic relations with Havana would be sought. Peru has had no direct relations with Cuba since soon after the Castro government came to power in Havana. The Cuban Charge d'Affaires was ordered home in December 1960 when it was found that he and his staff were guilty of "proven subversive interference" in Peru's national life. The Peruvian Government said Cuban diplomats had distributed Communists propaganda, and had financed the work of secret agents in Peru. The Cubans were also accused of inciting subversion against authority, but all past differences were forgotten at the ceremony in Lima on Saturday.
