After more than half a century of division Cuban Freemasons are on their path towards the unification process. The Masonic Press Agency announced yesterday that the Scottish Cathedral in Havana hosted the meeting between the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Cuba and the Grand Master of the Gran Lodge of Cuba in Exile. The event took place in the presence of the Sovereign Grand Commander, this being the first official step towards the unification of Cuban Freemasons.
According to the same source, Evaristo Rubén Gutiérrez Torres and Moris Bosakewish Varon are considering that it is important to approach Cuban Freemasons from the United States and Cuba, and was the Sovereign Grand Commander's Masonic tour in the U.S., that aid the foundation for this cooperation. As a first action, the Sovereign Grand Commander proposed to be recognized the work and dedication of the Cuban "Patriarch" in exile, Brother Armando Salas Amaro.
According to the AASR Supreme Council of Cuba, the Grand Master in exile, MW Moris Bosakewish Varon asked for one of the national flags of Cuba from the Grand Temple of Freemasons' Hall in Havana not as a gift but to be guarded by the Grand Lodge of Cuba in Exile (United States of America).
