China believes that it is a good thing that the US and Cuba are normalizing bilateral relations, said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying during a regular press conference on March 21, 2016, regarding US President Barack Obama’s visit to Cuba.

“The US has blocked Cuba for over half a century. The two countries are now carrying out dialogues and exchanges, which are in the interests of the two peoples and also conducive to regional peace, stability and development. It is hoped that the two sides would build on this good momentum. We also call on the US to completely lift its blockade policy on Cuba as soon as possible,” she said.

Referring to the recent reports linking China-Cuba relations to US-Cuba relations, Hua pointed out that mutual benefit and win-win results are dominant features of international relations in today's world. China and Cuba have long enjoyed friendly and mutually beneficial cooperation. “We will deepen our relations with Cuba, and this does not target nor affect any third party,” she said.
