Hugo Chavez Meets with Fidel and Raul Castro in Havana

Cuban leader Fidel Castro and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez held a fraternal and emotive meeting on Wednesday in Havana.

During five hours, the two leaders discussed several issues of international affairs, particularly the serious threat of a pending nuclear war.

The Venezuelan president acknowledged the exceptional role being played by Fidel Castro to raise universal awareness to prevent a war that would have incalculable consequences for the human species and expressed his satisfaction over the excellent health of the Cuban leader.

During the productive meeting, Fidel Castro shared some passages of his new book The Strategic Counter-Offensive, which is about to be published. The book recounts the revolutionary struggle starting with the defeat of the military offensive launched by the Batista dictatorship against the rebel army in mid-1958 up to the January 1, 1959 triumph of the Cuban revolution.

In the afternoon, the Venezuelan head of state met with Cuban President Raul Castro. The two leaders reviewed the excellent state of political and economic relations between Venezuela and Cuba.

Raul Castro accompanied Chavez to the Jose Marti International Airport where he saw him off Wednesday afternoon.
