Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Cuba signed an agreement with China to participate in their Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The initiative is famous for weighing down countries with heavy debt loads, which results in China seizing strategic ports and resources. China has its eyes on Cuba’s rich mineral and oil resources as well as its large nickel deposits. In recent years, critics have slammed the communist regime for using debt-trap diplomacy to lure countries into its initiative.
