HAVANA - Cuba’s revolutionary leader Fidel Castro Saturday delivered a speech on the Iranian nuclear issue before country’s parliament, his first official appearance in four years.
Dressed in his trademark olive green military uniform, the 83-year-old leader was greeted with applause as he walked in, Xinhua reported.
Castro warned that there could be a nuclear war if US President Barack Obama ordered an attack on Iran. The special session broadcast on television was held to debate Castro’s warnings about the risks of a nuclear war.
The former Cuban president has recently made several public appearances after recovering from a serious illness in 2006 that forced him to hand over the presidency to his younger brother Raul.
