Fidel Castro set to address Cuba national assembly

| 05/08/2010

(BBC): The former Cuban president, Fidel Castro, is expected to address the national assembly this weekend for the first time in four years. Cuban state media said a special session of the assembly on international affairs, requested by Mr Castro, would be held on Saturday. Fidel Castro, 83, ceded power to his brother Raul in 2006 after falling ill. But he now says he has fully recovered and has made frequent public appearances over the past month. The official announcement of the special parliamentary session does not mention Mr Castro by name, or say who will be speaking. In recent speeches Fidel Castro has warned against what he sees as the danger of imminent nuclear war involving the United States, Israel, Iran and North Korea.
