HAVANA TIMES — Cuban President, Raul Castro arrived in Venezuela on Wednesday morning to participate in the tribute on the first anniversary of the death of President Hugo Chavez, the official media reported on the island.

The tribute to whom Granma daily called “Cuba’s Best Friend” is set for today in Caracas and includes a civic-military parade along the Paseo Los Próceres (Avenue of the Heroes).

Also expected to attend are Bolivian President Evo Morales and his Nicaraguan counterpart Daniel Ortega.


What's your opinion?

    Raul is really visiting to keep an eye on his minion, Maduro.

    It’s simply amazing….Cuba imports free oil, and in turn they export shortages to Venezuela.

    Simply amazing that the Venezuelans put up with having Cubans infiltrated in all levels of the government and military. It’s like the body snatchers

      Oh be quiet. If you are neither Cuban nor Venezuelan you have no say in either’s political/economic affairs. I’m exhausted of reading all of these white, privileged individuals thinking they’re entitled to an opinion on everything. YOU’RE NOT. Clearly seeing how anti-Cuban you are, you are also most likely extremely pro-US, the imperial police force/economic exploiter of the ages. Do some research, and see who’s done some ACTUAL damage internationally, to peoples all over the globe. Napalm, nukes, fascist coups, authoritarian regimes, purges and holocausts, genocide, experimentation, rape, SLAVERY. Educate yourself.

        If you are exhausted I suggest a warm glass of milk and a short nap.

        As for my comments….I am entitled to my opinions, that is the beauty of living in the USA. Not only am I entitled to them, I am also allowed to express them whenever and wherever I choose. You my friend have no say in that. As for the rest of your diatribe….well you make quite a lot of assumptions. Having lived the reality (migrating with my family to the USA when I was young) I can well comment first hand on the disaster that is Cuba.

        The Marxist Cuban regime has only brought 50 years of misery to Cubans!

        …I hope you continue to enjoy these pages and the comments found within. You may not always agree with them so rest up, you don’t want to get too exhausted

    You left out the best part: when they tried to raise the Cuban flag next to the Venezuelan flag it fell to the ground.
