S. Korea, Cuba hold foreign ministerial talks in New York

SEOUL, Sept. 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha had bilateral talks with her Cuban counterpart in New York this week, effectively maintaining the momentum of high-level dialogue between the two sides despite their lack of formal diplomatic ties, her ministry said Friday.

Kang's meeting with Bruno Rodriguez took place on Thursday (local time) while they were attending the annual U.N. General Assembly session.

It was their second meeting, following one held in Cuba in May.

It enabled South Korea to "maintain the dialogue momentum" with the government of Cuba, the only Latin American nation with which South Korea has no diplomatic relations, the ministry said.

The ministers discussed ways for the development of relations between the two nations and security conditions on the Korean Peninsula, it added.

They agreed to push for cooperation in various sectors, including the economy, culture and people-to-people exchange.

Kang also had separate talks with the top diplomats of Argentina and Colombia -- Jorge Faurie and Carlos Trujillo -- in New York this week.
