(Nov 08, 2013) The Mexican Sectary of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP), Luís Videgaray, reported that the Mexican Government will forgive payment of 70% of Cuba's debt to Mexico, which amounted to about US$487 million. The federal officer explained that this debt came from a loan that the Cuban government obtained from the National Foreign Trade Bank (Bancomext) almost 15 years ago.

Videgaray said in a radio interview that Cuba will pay the remaining 30% of the debt within ten years. He added that this payment arrangement will allow the restoration of diplomatic relations and other relations with the island nation. (Id.)
