Fidel Castro Continues Public Offensive

by Circles Robinson

HAVANA TIMES, July 14 — Fidel Castro continued his renewed public offensive on Tuesday with his third appearance in a week, this time in a visit to a global economic think tank in the capital.

The former president, —currently the chief advisor to the government of his brother Raul Castro— spoke with economists about the consequences of a possible new conflict in the Middle East, a matter that concerns him deeply.

The Cuban leader has warned of a pending attack against Iran by the United States and Israel.

Fidel Castro was out of public view from the end of July 2006 until he reappeared last week at a research center and Havana and then made a live TV appearance on the Round Table program on July 12.

A columnist for the local media during his long convalescence, the 83-year-old leader of the Cuban revolution has thus far restricted his comments to pressing international issues and not local Cuban matters.
