NOVOSIBIRSK, March 27. /TASS/. The leader of the Cuban revolution Fidel Castro is doing well, Cuban Ambassador to Russia Emilio Garcia Lozada said on Friday at a meeting with Novosiribsk Mayor Anatoly Lokot.
"Very well," the diplomat said, answering the mayor’s question about Castro’s health.
Fidel Castro’s son, scientific advisor of the State Council of Cuba Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart added that his father closely follows the situation in the country and the actions of the current leadership of the republic. "He is following what we are doing in the country," Castro Diaz-Balart said.
At a meeting with the Novosibirsk mayor, the Cuban delegation made several proposals on strengthening relations between the two countries. In particular, the sides will consider making a sister-city agreement between Novosibirsk and Havana, along with organizing festivals aimed at promoting cultural ties.
Fidel Castro has not appeared on public for a long time, and the last photo with him is dated back to August 2014. At the beginning of 2015, several media wrote about Castro’s possible death. The speculations were denounced at the end of January - Fidel Castro wrote an open letter to Cuban students. In the letter, he said he "still does not trust the US policy."
