he Cuban leader has once again warned of the imminent threat of a nuclear war in the Arabian-Persian Gulf and noted that certain conditions seem to be announcing the onset of an unprecedented situation.
The Cuban leader Fidel Castro opened an extraordinary session of the National Assembly of the People’s Power reading a communiqué before the deputies attending the session, in which he once again warned against the imminent threat of a nuclear war in the Arabian-Persian Gulf.
"At first —eight weeks ago— I thought there was no possible solution for the imminent war," noted Fidel. “Then I realized that there was still hope." He also added that, in spite of this, certain conditions seem to be announcing the onset of an unprecedented situation.
“A man, the president of the United States, will have to make the decision alone. He has not realized this, probably due to his many duties, but his advisors are starting to understand this," he added.
The commander in chief also spoke of the situation of Gerardo Hernández, one of the Cuban Five currently imprisoned in the United States for fighting terrorism against Cuba. He noted that the tortures Gerardo was recently subjected to had come to an end, something that had never happened in the last 12 years of their imprisonment in the context of the hatred of the United States towards Cuba and its patriots.
In this connection, he said that the next step could be the granting of a visa to Adriana, Gerardo's wife, to travel to that country to visit her husband, or his release, or both.
With regard to the war the United States is preparing against Iran, Fidel said that Teheran will not give an inch to the United States or Israel, and these countries would have to launch their attacks by the end of the term set by the UN Security Council.
If this happened, Fidel Castro said, it will be President Obama who will have to give the order for the announced attack.
