Cuban leader Fidel Castro has expressed confidence in China's ability to tide over difficulties caused by unusually heavy snowstorms that recently hit its southern and central regions.

China is a revolutionary country, "perfectly organized, with great economic and human power, where all the resources are immediately put at the service" of the people, the Cuban leader said in an article published on Friday.

Castro, 81, is recovering from an 18-month intestinal hemorrhage surgery which forced him to temporarily hand over power to Defense Minister Raul Castro.

The Cuban leader constantly writes articles to express his views on environment, economy and other issues, but has not appeared in public since the surgery.

In the article, Castro also warned of climate change, citing the dangers of the increasing oil consumption, food scarcity and the excessive exploitation of oceans.
