Fidel Castro to Appear on Television

Monday, 12 Jul 2010 07:39 AM


The Communist party newsletter Granma says Fidel Castro will appear on a key Cuban television news program for the first time in at least four years.

The newsletter says the reclusive 83-year-old revolutionary leader is set to discuss his concerns about the Middle East on the Mesa Redonda — or Round Table, a daily talk show about current events that is usually transmitted live and seen across the island.

The headlines reads "This afternoon, Special Mesa Redonda with Fidel."

Castro has not appeared on the program since a serious illness in 2006 forced him to step down — first temporarily, than permanently — and hand power over to his brother Raul.

Photos of Castro greeting workers were published in state-media over the weekend.
