Fidel Castro meets Argentine president in Havana

English.news.cn   2014-01-27 10:03:32

HAVANA, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro met Sunday with visiting Argentine President Cristina Fernandez.

Local media reported that Castro lunched with Fernandez, who is in Havana to attend the 2nd Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), scheduled for Jan. 28-29.

"After exchanging warm greetings, the South American head of state and Cuban leader discussed topics of regional interest, particularly the main problems facing humanity, food and the various armed conflicts that threaten peace on the planet," the state-run Cubadebate website said.

In January 2013, Fernandez met with Fidel Castro and his brother Raul Castro during a visit to Cuba to look in on then Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who was undergoing cancer treatment in Havana.

The Argentine president arrived here Friday, becoming the first head of state to arrive for the regional summit.

The CELAC, established in December 2011 in Caracas, comprises 33 countries of the western hemisphere with the exception of the United States and Canada. Cuba took the bloc's rotating presidency in January 2013.
