HAVANA TIMES — General/President Raúl Castro returned to Cuba on Tuesday after a three-day visit to Uruguay for the inauguration of Tabare Vazquez, who returns to the presidency in the South American country.

Castro was welcomed home by First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel and other government ministers, reported the official Granma newspaper.

While in Uruguay for the first time, Raul Castro met with Vazquez (who was president from 2005 to 2010) and other leaders of the Frente Amplio governing coalition.

During his absence from Cuba, former president Fidel Castro was in the headlines over his reunion with the Cuban Five, 73 days after the final three’s return to the island.

 

One thought on “Raul Castro Returns to Cuba from Uruguay

  • OK, this is a silly comment but….why does the top leadership of Cuba look so scruffy in this photo? Was it casual Friday or something? I guess the whole ‘suit and tie’ thing is best for cooler climes but at least tuck in your shirt. After all, one day Diaz Canel could become the puppet President of Cuba. He should try a little harder to look the part.
