Spanish King Calls for More Diversity and Plurality in Cuba

Spain’s King Felipe VI has called on the Cuban government to open up to the “diverse and plural” nature of society and pledged support for such change, reported dpa news.

Institutions need to “represent the entire diverse and plural reality that exists among citizens” who need to be able to “express their preferences themselves,” Felipe said at a reception Spain offered to Cuban leaders late Wednesday in Havana.

He is the first Spanish monarch to make an official state visit to the island.

Felipe said Spain wanted to “accompany” Cuba in allowing citizens to express themselves “on the basis of respect.”
