After being received by Solis, Fraga carried out a presentation at the University of California in Los Angeles where he exchanged about the reality of Cuba and the bilateral relations and later held a pleasant meeting on February 28 morning with Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti.

He visited the City of Bridges in the afternoon where Mayor Valerie Muñoz presented the diplomat and Cuban ambassador Jose Ramon Cabañas some certificates in recognition of the efforts made in favor of the relations between that city and Cuba.

During his visit, the Cuban representative expressed his gratitude for the expressions of affection and the declarations of support to the bilateral relations between the two nations, while reiterated that Cuba will continue working ‘for relations with the United States based on goodwill and mutual respect, for the benefit of our countries and peoples.’
