Raul Castro to pay state visit to Mexico in early November
Cuba´s President Raul Castro will pay a state visit to Mexico November 5-7, according to a communiqué issued by the Mexican government.

Mexico´s Foreign Affairs Office announced that the Cuban head of state and his host, President Enrique Peña Nieto, will meet in Merida, capital city of Yucatan state, according to PL news agency.

The two presidents will consider bilateral and regional issues related to the political, economic and cooperation areas, according to the official communiqué, which notes that Raul´s visit has special significance since it will take place amidst historic bilateral relations currently at an excellent stage.

Cuba and Mexico have shared permanent diplomatic relations for the past 113 years, while Mexico is Cuba´s third major commercial partner in Latin America and the seventh major source of tourists to the island.

    The Cuban president could give some helpful words of advice to his Mexican counterpart on measures to deal with the illegal drug industry. Clearly the Cuban PNR's methods are effective, the Mexican methods less so.
