Cuba’s Raul Castro Now in Namibia

HAVANA TIMES, July 19 – Cuban President Raul Castro begins an official two-day visit to Namibia on Sunday on the heels of attending the Non Aligned Movement summit in Egypt and visiting Algeria.

Juventud Rebelde newspaper reports that Castro will hold talks with Presdient Hifikepunye Lucas Pohamba.  He will also visit a monument to pay tribute to those that fought for the liberation of Namibia (1990) from the Apartheid regime in South Africa.

The trip is Castro’s first to Namibia, which has a wide range of cooperation agreements with Cuba, reported the Namibia Economist.

“The bonds of solidarity and friendship between Namibia and Cuba are written in blood and shared vision for a peaceful and just world,” reads a government statement.

At the NAM summit Castro gave a final report on Cuba’s three years as the chair of the 118-nation organization and handed over the presidency to Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak.
