Fidel Castro to Host Non-Aligned Summit Dinner

Sunday, 10 September 2006 12:00 AM

HAVANA -- Cuban President Fidel Castro has apparently recovered enough from abdominal surgery to host a welcome dinner for heads of state and government attending a non-aligned summit in Havana this week.

An updated schedule for press coverage released on Sunday added that Castro would host the dinner Friday evening.

Castro, 80, ceded power to younger brother and Defense Minister Raul Castro July 31 to undergo surgery for intestinal bleeding.

What ails the legendary revolutionary and his recovery have been shrouded in secrecy.

Sundays announcement put to rest speculation over what if any role Castro would play during the summit of 116 developing countries, which begins Monday and includes a two-day meeting of heads of state and government September 15-16.

It was not clear if Castro would participate in any of the work sessions.

Castro stated in a message earlier this week that he planned to meet privately with some of the expected 50 heads of state and government.
