Country Report
The article presents information on Cuba's foreign relations. Cuba has expanded its military presence internationally between the 1970s and 1980s, with deployments in Angola, Ethiopia and Nicaragua. Its diplomatic relations with the European Union (EU) have been strained due to the March 2003 crackdown on dissidents. Its trade and investment relationship with Canada has been maintained as proven by the large presence of Canadian mining firm Sherritt Corp. in the country.
