Background: Cuban Foreign Minister Raul Roa this week visited Santiago for talks with the Chilean President, Dr Salvador Allende. The visit was in return for a visit to Havana by the Chilean Foreign Minister Clodomiro Almeyda Medina at the beginning of August.
There is still no indication when Dr Fidel Castro may make his expected visit to Chile and its Marxist leader.
At the end of the Havana visit, a joint communique was issued condemning the isolation imposed on Cuba by the majority of Latin American states.
Chile and Cuba have already signed a five-year agreement on scientific and technical co-operation.
