Medvedev meets Raúl Castro

leave a comment »

President Dmitry Medvedev was due to hold talks with Fidel Castro tonight to rebuild Russia’s relations with Cuba almost a decade after they ended in acrimony.The Russian leader earlier met and signed deals on nickel mining and oil exploration with Raul Castro, who succeeded his ailing older brother as Cuba’s president in February.
In a display of bonhomie, the two presidents toured Havana’s historical sights arm in arm. “It has been a magnificent visit and now he will see Fidel,” Raul shouted to TV cameras.
The one-night stop in Havana was the final leg of Medvedev’s week-long Latin America tour, a visit intended to open business opportunties for Russian companies and to show that Moscow could operate in the US backyard amid tension over Washington’s involvement in eastern Europe and the Caucasus.
“One must admit, to put it simply, we have never had a serious presence here (in Latin America). These have been just episodes,” Medvedev told reporters.
