"Cuba will consider the invitation made by the European Union in a respectful and constructive way and in accordance with its sovereignty and national interests," asserted the declaration signed by deputy foreign minister Rogelio Sierra.

On Monday morning, the Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the European Union authorized the European Commission and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, to start negotiations on an agreement of political dialogue and of cooperation between the European Union and its member states and Cuba.

After the decision, Ashton assured that she was confident "in that these negotiations will contribute to consolidate our commitment to Cuba. I hope that Cuba accepts this invitation and we can soon work in pursuit of a firmer relation."

She added that the human rights issue will continue being a central theme in the policy of the European Union towards Cuba.
