HAVANA TIMES, Sept. 3 — Cuba’s Fidel Castro continued on Friday morning his campaign of alert of an imminent new war in the Middle East.
He spoke to students and professors on the steps of the University of Havana and centered his speech on a call for US President Obama to avoid setting off a war against Iran with nuclear consequences.
The former Cuban president and still head of the all-powerful Communist Party of Cuba said it was his country’s role to warn the world of the dangers such a war would bring to the planet.
Castro also told the students that climate change is the other global problem that deserves the utmost attention.
He did not mention any domestic issues, keeping to his foreign agenda that has dominated his pronouncements since returning to the public arena in early July after nearly four years of convalescence.
Havana Times will publish Fidel Castro’s entire speech as soon as it’s official translation is available.
