Castro elected President of Non-Aligned Movement Nations
font size    

Cuban President Fidel Castro was elected Friday as President of the Non-Aligned Movement Nations during its 14th Summit Havana at the Convention Center.

At the suggestion of Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the heads of state or government from more than 100 member countries applauded the decision to choose the Cuban leader as President of the Non-Aligned Nations, a duty he will assume for the second time.

Shortly before, Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque announced that Castro will not lead the Cuban delegation to the forum after doctors insisted he must have a rest. Castro is recovering from a surgery in late July.

The Summit meeting also approved Cuban's First Vice President Raul Castro to act as the acting president until Fidel Castro is fully recovered.
