Cuba can reconcile with US: Fidel Castro


Havana: Fidel Castro appears to be on lending terms to Cuba’s talks with the United States after releasing a statement addressing his longtime adversary for the first time since Havana and Washington announced they would restore diplomatic ties.

“I don’t trust the policy of the United States, nor have I exchanged a word with them, but this does not mean I reject a pacific solution to the conflicts,” he wrote in a letter to a student federation read at the University of Havana. It also appeared in Communist party newspaper ‘Granma’.

“We will always defend co-operation and friendship with all the people of the world, including with our political adversaries,” added Castro.
