As for Castro’s role, the divergence of opinions is evident, the Kremlin spokesman added

MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. The fundamental approaches towards certain events by Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President-elect Donald Trump are close, but that does not mean that there can be no disagreements between the two leaders, Russian Presidential Spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Tuesday.

"Putin’s and Trump’s views are not identical," he noted, commenting on the two presidents’ views regarding the historic role of the late Cuban leader, Fidel Castro. "Of course, there can be dissenting opinions. The approaches towards some basic things are generally similar, but, of course, there are divergent views."

"As for Castro’s role, the divergence of opinion is evident," Peskov noted.
