According to local news agency Prensa Latina, Castro flew to the Venezuelan capital at the head of a representative Cuban delegation, which included Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, as well as Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez.

Castro, 91, currently does not formally hold any state or party office, and his appearance in public, even in Cuba, is associated exclusively with the most important events. Therefore, the visit of the revolutionary abroad testifies to the special nature of the relations between Cuba and Venezuela in general and between Castro himself and Hugo Chávez in particular. The Cuban revolutionaries, represented by the Castro brothers and the Venezuelan “comandante”, have always been united by strong ties of friendship, the countries being the closest allies to this day.

Let us remember that “Comandante” Chávez passed away on March 5, 2013 after a long battle against cancer. By the way, Chavez was treated in Cuba, where he underwent a course of radiation and chemotherapy, and also underwent several operations. But the disease turned out to be stronger, and at the age of 58, the leader of the Bolivarian revolution died in a military hospital in Caracas. His remains rest in a marble sarcophagus in the military history museum of the Venezuelan capital.

It was this building, located at a strategic height, that was used by Chávez himself in February 1992 as the command center for an armed uprising against the government of President Carlos Andrés Pérez. The uprising later failed, but Chávez gained popularity, allowing him to become president and win elections in 1998. He led Venezuela from 1999 until his death in 2013 and was noted for carrying out major socialist reforms in the country, and was also remembered by the whole world for his slogans and the fight against the imperialists represented by the United States.

By the way

In August of last year, the Russian Defense Ministry announced the involvement of US intelligence services in Chávez’s death. It turned out that Washington used military biological developments to eliminate objectionable politicians in Latin America. The connection between the death of the Venezuelan leader and the developments in the field of biological weapons in the United States is confirmed by forensic tests and testimonies of Cuban doctors who treated Chávez, who declared an atypical course of the disease and his resistance to the use of drugs
