Fidel applauds Russian proposal on Syria
Havana » Former Cuban President Fidel Castro has published an article applauding a Russian-backed proposal to secure and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons that led to the U.S.-Russian agreement Saturday to implement the plan.
In an article, signed by Castro and published in Cuban press Saturday, the 87-year-old leader praises “the intelligent Russian initiative.”
Castro also lauds Russia as a “brave country” that “stayed firm before the unusual pretension of the government of the United States, threatening to launch an overwhelming attack against the Syrian defenses.”
