When friends visit
Brazilian president Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva arrives in Havana today for a brief visit – his first since 2003.
According to media reports, Mr da Silva will meet the “provisional” president, Raul Castro, and other senior officials, sign the customary “trade agreements” and offer the Castro regime credits worth an estimated USD 1 billion.
But the big question is whether the Brazilian head of state will get to meet the ailing Fidel Castro, who has not been since in public for more than 18 months.
We shall see.
